Colossians 3:19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be embittered against them.
-The Christian family involves mutual submission as we see in this passage by the grace of God. Subordinating our own personal desires for the good of the loved one enables us to forgive and have complete self-control, which are fruits of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:32, Galatians 5:23).
-What does not being embittered (disillusioned, bitter, resentful, sour, disaffected, cynical, estranged, poisoned) look like in our life? Are there areas we need to work so that we protect against this spirit that fractures and splits our love for each other?
