Couple Challenge: Faith & Marriage


Resentment is not Biblical, nor is it good for your marriage. Instead, be honest with your feelings. Resentment occurs when we feel like we have been treated unfairly and it leads to bitterness. The longer we hold on to it, the more it festers and creates a bigger and bigger wound. We need to let go of any resentment that is festering inside and trade it for forgiveness.

We also need to take responsibility for any part that we may have caused. Then, in love, discuss the hurt with your spouse. As we own up to our own part and practice forgiveness, we are better able to protect the heart of the one we love. Pray together and ask God to help you overcome bitterness and to forgive each other. If there is no resentment in this season of your marriage, then discuss how you can avoid holding on to grudges that fester and create resentment.

Couple Challenge: Memorize & Discuss



  • Look through the list of things that Paul teaches we should put away once we become a Christian. Which of these do you personally, still need to work on getting rid of?
  • Which of these do you need to put away from your marriage relationship?
  • Spend time individually and together praying and asking God to forgive you for these areas and to help you trade these for Godly characteristics.
  • For each of the areas you struggle in, write the word on paper. Now cross through it and write a word that is a Godly characteristic you can replace it with.
  • Choose a Bible verse for the Godly characteristics you wrote down and begin memorizing those verses and whenever you catch yourself going back to the old ways, be quick to stop right then and ask God to forgive you and repeat the verse you memorized.
