Skillet and a Japanese Steakhouse

"Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also forgave you."  Ephesians 4:32

Patience with your spouse avoids a problem.  When we are slow to anger, we are avoiding arguments and bitterness.  In the same way, kindness creates a blessing.  When we are kind to our mate and tender-hearted, we are blessing them.
