Marriage ~ The Apostle Paul tells us to go ahead and be angry, but he gives us a caveat, and when we’re married it’s the caveat we often ignore: Don’t stay angry; don’t give the Devil that kind of foothold in your life. That caveat can sometimes feel like our cross, but when we ignore it, Satan comes waltzing into our bedroom like he owns the place – because to destroy marriages from the inside out is to corrode the Kingdom of God.
