When a husband and wife blow up at one another, it can quickly become destructive. A marriage cannot withstand ongoing anger. Psalm 37:8 warns, "Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; it leads only to evil." On today's classic edition of Family Talk, the late Jean Lush suggests that you can defuse the intensity by talking to a close friend, exercising, or even doing something constructive such as cleaning the garage. These strategies will help you to cool off and wisely address your spouse in a gentle manner that will be pleasing to the Lord.
