We’ve learned to select our hills, our battles, carefully, sparingly, even lovingly. If I’m putting Duz first as I should be, loving him as God commands, the hills I would fight him for become less and less numerous, of less and less consequence. It’s not about me – it’s about him.

What does the Bible have to say about how we should handle petty annoyances? Read Proverbs 19:11, Proverbs 15:1 and Ephesians 4:2.

Ultimately, the most important hill we should BOTH be willing to die on is putting Christ first, in our lives and in our marriage. Christ first, and our spouse next. When we do this, when our priorities are in the right place, those inconsequential things don’t seem to matter as much.

What are some pet peeves about your spouse that you need to let go?

  1. True. Petty stuff need not be argued about. Kaso minsan nadadala rin ng emosyon. What matters is, at the end of the day, nagkakaayos naman ang mag-asawa at ang buong pamilya. That we choose to be happy and go on with living our lives to the fullest. Humility and kindness are two things worth remembering always. :)
