Welcome back to Marriage Monday! I'm so glad you've joined me as we focus on strengthening and promoting godly marriages, both in our nation and in our own backyards!
While that statement may seem a bit archaic in our culture today, it actually contains much wisdom. I remember reading a book a number of years ago that contained parenting wisdom from yesteryear and learning this secret to child training: When we show sympathy for our children and their childish problems, hurts and disappointments, we win their hearts. However, if we make light of or make fun of the trivial (to us) things that break their little hearts, we are sure to cut the fragile heart strings that tie our hearts together and do irreparable damage to our relationship. I believe that this wisdom applies to the husband/wife relationship as well.
