It is in marriage that all our bad attitudes show up. They show up bad that they give an offensive odour literarily, and guess what, your spouse won’t be able to stand it for too long.

Most of the things we can get by with as a single, we won’t be able to get by with them as married couples.

Remember, your mum used to tell you, you were lazy, and it didn’t matter as long as you were single.

Your friends told you, you were a snob. Your dad told you, you were too temperamental. Your boss told you, you were rude. Your roommate told you, you were too greedy.

All the weaknesses that show up and we get people to correct us about them, is God trying to correct our wrong attitudes.

These same wrong attitudes are what we carry into our marriages. These attitudes cause a lot of trouble. We expect our wives to cope with our negative attitudes, all in the name of being submissive and respectful. The wives should be submissive, but please don’t let us over-stretch ourselves.

Also, the wives complain about the husbands not loving them, but let’s say the truth. Is it easy to love a wife with negative attitudes? Let us make it easier for our spouses to submit to us and love us, as the case may be, and begin to correct any negative attitudes you notice in your life.

God corrects us because He does not want to leave us the same way we are. We have to yield to His corrections if we must live a better life.

For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. –Proverbs 3:12 (KJV)

And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? –Hebrews 12:5 -9 (KJV)

The Lord urges us to change our negative attitudes. Here are some bad attitudes that will not make our marriages work;

1. Lazy attitude

2. Unforgiving attitudes

3. Insincere attitudes

4. Selfish attitudes

5. Mean attitudes

6. Unpleasant attitudes

Work on these negative attitudes and the Lord will bless your marriage.

I work on my negative attitudes

Father, help me, I receive grace to work on my negative attitudes

I will work on my negative attitude

For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. –Proverbs 3:12 (KJV)
