Years ago I read about a man whose wife was divorcing him and demanded half the estate. What caught my attention was the husband’s response. He took a large power saw and started to saw his home in half! Studies indicate that finances consistently rank as a leading problem area within marriage. This holds true for all families, from rich to poor. Running the finances for a family is not easy, especially in hard economic times. Frankly, it can get complicated, stressful, and produce huge tensions. But one thing is for certain regarding finances and marriage: everyone makes mistakes. Everyone. So what’s the answer? It’s called forgiveness.
“Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you” (Colossians 3:13, NKJV).
Holding a grudge against a spouse for a bad financial mistake? Are you bitter against a former spouse for leaving you in such bad financial straits? Or perhaps you are still irate at your teenager for wrecking the family car? Forgive. The Lord commands it. He forgave you.
You do not need to face this challenge alone. Jesus has conquered this challenge so that you can move from your present situation to a life of overcoming. Invite him to lead you in your journey. He will forgive, comfort, and heal you.
