Forgiveness in Marriage

It is unfortunate in a marriage if there is an array of sordid memories of past sins on the part of either partner. If young people could only realize that a happy marriage depends not only on the present, but upon the past, they would be more reluctant to enter into loose, intimate relations with anyone and everyone. Many a marriage has been imperiled by the backlash of past sins, which were not just confessed, but “found out.”

As to the necessity of confessing past sins to one’s mate, I don’t think it is always advisable or necessary. I have known of homes that were wrecked by such confessions. The main thing is to confess any past wrongs to God, resolve to be true to your marriage vows; and absolve the black past by a spotless present.

Listen to a message from Billy Graham on God’s forgiveness.

No matter what you’ve done, God wants to forgive you.

Prayer for the day

Thank You for forgiving and forgetting the past. Help me to do the same, Lord.

    It is better and equaly necessary to confess ones past to his|her mate because some mirrage|relationship crashed due to undisclose past. There are alot of thing that can not be hidding such as having given birth before meeting one another, having a divoced mirrage with somebody else etc.
