The key to fighting your spouse

I learned early on in my marriage that when I get into a conflict with my husband that there is one important key--never fight against my husband, but never be afraid to fight for our marriage. My marriage is my number one earthly priority and most squabbles are utterly forgettable. On those occasions when a greater principle is at risk, then I must be wise and fight for the unity of our marriage, while never degrading or disrespecting my husband who means the world to me.

One of my favorite proverbs is Proverbs 14:1-
The wise woman builds her house,
but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
As a woman, I need to always pray for the wisdom to build up my marriage and my family, to build up my ministry, to build up my friendships, to build up my local church. It is foolishness to tear it down brick by brick by not submitting myself to God and trusting in His work in my life.
