Turning Toward Each Other
Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.
If a husband and wife are humble, patient, gentle, and selfless in a relations this will cause less confrontation and arguments. This verse reminds us to keep calm and do as Jesus would do.
Turning toward each other means connecting with one’s spouse; being there for each other during the minor events in each other’s lives; and responding favorably to one’s spouse’s bids for attention, affection, humor and support.
Accepting influence means sharing power. Make your spouse a partner in your decision-making by taking their opinions and feelings into account.
