Day 21: Honesty Is the Best Policy
Do not lie to one another.
If you’re serious about building a strong marriage, honesty is essential. Hiding the truth from your spouse, even with the good intention of avoiding an argument, is never the right choice. If you want trust, you must first have honesty.
Understand that honesty is more than the absence of lies. It means putting away all deceit and entrusting yourself to each other at the deepest level. And it means that you have no shame from yesterday to worry about being discovered today.
Praying together for our marriage
