Two words – Break faith. That will do it every time.
Malachi reveals God’s deep displeasure with husbands who forget that their wife is their partner and fail to take their marriage vows seriously enough.
“She is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant…So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith.” Malachi 2:15-16
As a preventative measure, Malachi counsels me to guard myself in my spirit. So today, I’ve been thinking through ways I could be tempted to break faith with Mara and how to guard myself against them. It’s proven to be a profitable exercise.
