Within the three days that Christ was in the grave; The world mourned, Heaven prepared a throne-room for the Eternal King of Glory, and hell witnessed the collapse of its empire.

Sometimes in the silence and sorrow of life, Christ is doing His greatest work.

Yes, Jesus flipped tables and used a whip in the temple, but He also said “Forgive them, for they do not know what they do” while He hung on the cross.

We can show righteous anger for those who do evil things, but we also need to be willing to plead for their souls as they seek to kill us. That is what it means to follow Christ, to be as He is, showing mercy and grace to those who have no idea what they do; even if it takes our lives.

If you have to be the one to push the man forward and he’s not doing anything, you let him grow up first until he decides to do what’s right for you. But if you feel like you’re the one carrying the weight, you’re the one who push the relationship forward every single time, that’s the way it’s gonna be from the day you get married until you die. You might think you’re helping the man, you’re not helping anyone, least of all yourself.
