Have any of you ever notied that we can be great Christians and treat everyone with love, kindness, respect, and compassion, but then we can be rude and crude to our spouse, and say things to them that we would never say to anyone else. There are times that I feel like a hypocrite because of the way I can get angry at my wife. But I know I am not a hypocrite because I am not trying to be something I am not. It's just that my wife can make me furious and get on my last nerve. The thing that bothers me is the fact that regardless of how much of the love of Christ I show others, if I don't show it enough to my own wife, it's going to hurt my testimony. I mean what if many, many people walk up to her and tell her what a good guy her husband is while all along she is thinking "you wouldn't say that if you could see and hear him at home." Please pray for me in this area..
