There are three instructions that I believe every married couple and all singles in courtship should take cognizance of.

1. Be kind to one another


2. Be tenderhearted.


3. Forgive one another

These three instructions will go a long way to help couples relate with one another and also help in managing a lot of issues.

These three instructions can also be found in

Eph 4:32 (KJV)  
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Romantic Tenderness: Caring for Love’s Flame

A kind husband living with a kind wife will minimize unnecessary quarrels.



Then it says to be tender-hearted. 



That is, let your hearts be tender towards each other. 



Do you know how a mother is tender towards a day-old baby? 

How does she handle her, feed her, carry her, and nurture her?

What if you are tender this way to your loved one?

You won’t shout at each other.



The husband will never lift his hands against his wife. 



The wife will never use abusive words on her husband. 



Then it talks about forgiving one another. 

And this is powerful. 

Don’t be bitter towards each other. Forgive easily and quickly.

Romantic Tenderness: Caring for Love’s Flame

Take a look at the Message translation:



Eph 4:32 (MSG)  
Be gentle with one another, sensitive. Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you.

Be gentle. 

Be sensitive.



Let forgiveness be quick and thorough. 

Do not forgive halfway.

Finally, let’s take a look at the amplified Version:

Eph 4:32 (AMP)  
And become useful and helpful and kind to one another, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving one another [ readily and freely ], as God in Christ forgave you.

Take a look at the words used.



Compassionate. Understanding. Loving. 



This attitude will eliminate screaming at each other, shouting at each other, being at each other’s neck, being vindictive, being in strife, being violent at each other, and speaking wrong words at each other.



I pray that God will grant us more understanding.

I pray for your marriages, that God will abate every storm and crush every opposition in Jesus’ name! 

The plans of the devil over your marriage are destroyed in Jesus’ name!

Be blessed!
