Knowledge Puffs Up, But Love Builds Up

Couples often engage in power struggles. Both think they are "right" and squabble endlessly, creating division. Knowledge can be a dangerous thing, used against our mate. Be extremely careful about "taking a position" on something as love takes the higher road and lets go on minor things. (1 Corinthians 8:1)
