Jen Thorn identifies five toxins that can poison any marriage slowly and insidiously. Are any of these in your marriage?
Nagging, Anger, Keeping Score, Complaining or Selfishness. . .
How do we deal with these toxic habits in marriage? Jen explains:
Marriage is the union of two sinners who bring into the marriage quite a bit of toxins. It is easy to point the finger at the other person, but we need to spend more time weeding out our own toxic habits and the best way to to do this is to live at the foot of the cross.
In the light of Christ’s work on our behalf anger is calmed, complaining is turned to thankfulness and selfishness withers and dies. Is it easy? No way! But it is possible because we have the power of Christ.
