Clothed in Humility


Pride is deadly in all relationships, including marriage. Do you need some humility therapy?

Looking backward is a dangerous indulgence. It turned Lot’s wife into a pillar of salt. It can turn your marriage salty and sour if you keep looking backward, wondering if you should perhaps have chosen a different spouse from former boyfriends or girlfriends.

Pride is deadly in all relationships, including marriage. When you start feeling that you’ve been cheated in life, that your spouse owes you, or that you could have done better, it’s time for a new “marriage garment”: “As God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with . . . humility” (Colossians 3:12).

Humility means realizing that you can be a chore to live with sometimes. Humility means that you thank and praise God for giving you a spouse with as many great qualities as yours. Humility means thanking your spouse for putting up with you, realizing that your spouse’s irritations with you are probably three or four times greater than you think they are.

Need some humility therapy? Consider Jesus Christ, King of the angels, who was born in a barn and executed on a vertical instrument of torture, all to make your life and your eternity better, all so that you could live happily ever after with him.
