For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again.
Prayer: Thank the Lord for his forgiveness, his grace, and the righteousness that only he can bestow. Thank him for his promise that though the righteous fall, they can rise again and continue to build a strong marriage with love and respect. Ask God to put it in your heart to refuse to let defeat defeat you.
Action: Make personalized copies of Proverbs 24:16 that say, “For a righteous spouse falls seven times, and rises again,” and put them up on bathroom mirrors, inside cupboard doors, and in other places where you will see them every day. (For discussion questions, see page 215 in appendix A.)
