Being Kind and Compassionate in Marriage

Two keys to building a healthy relationship

“Be kind and compassionate to one another….” Ephesians 4:32

We don’t have the time or patience for their burdens because we have enough of our own. “Just pull it together and keep moving!” is what our attitude expresses. Instead of building our marriage in little ways each day, we slowly dismantle the relationship we’re to cherish the most.
