We learn from the word ” The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:21 New International Version

Whew, this verse always hits me in the face as it makes me wonder if I’m doing enough. It’s the “those who love it that will eat its fruits” part that stands out for me. Being in a marriage means loving God more than the world we live in and eating the fruit of both the word and the holy spirit to gain power for the journey.

Come on somebody!!!!!! This is not easy as you rely on another person to uphold these same standards and be on one accord with you daily.
