Stepping stones to a strong second marriage….
We must be careful not to compare ourselves to the former spouse or compare our spouse to our former spouse. This can get you in the ditch really quick! Sounds like a “duh” statement but the enemy is subtle and you can find yourself in competition with the way the former spouse did things, how they dress etc. Remember that your spouse married you for who you are, for your personality, for your giftings, etc. we must also realize that when children are involved, that former spouse is still the mother or father of the children. Resist the temptation to become jealous when they must have contact with that former spouse. Remember you are the current Mr. or current Mrs. Jealousy never looks good on us and is not attractive.
Galatians 5:26 (AMP) “Let us not become vainglorious and self-conceited, competitive and challenging and provoking and irritating to one another, envying and being jealous of one another.”
Just another stepping stone….
