Throw away the score card

forgiveLittle ones are often caught in the cross fire of parents fighting. Recently Carrie Underwood drew attention to this issue in her song titled Little Toy Guns.

In a fight someone has to decide to put their pride down. When someone is willing, it is amazing how the damage can stop almost immediately. It takes two to tango, remember. Pride and jealousy are two emotions that often fuel arguments.

Is your relationship worth fighting for?  Then put your weapon down. Fly the white flag.

Surrender isn’t weakness; it is the start of healing.

Abe Lincoln who led one of the bloodiest battles in American history said, “I’ve been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.” He understood humility and surrender.

The reason why so many are still troubled and making little progress is they haven’t come to the end of themselves. We are still trying to give orders and interfering with God’s work within us. A.W. Tozer.

You must give everything to make your relationship work, yes even surrendering.
