My husband and I just celebrated our fourteenth anniversary. Compared to many marriages, our union is still a mere teenager.
Yet, in our time together, we have sustained times of grief, sickness, job loss, wear and tear of household appliances, buying and selling of houses, and the raising of two kids. I can honestly say, we have seen our share of stress. And in those moments of stress, I have opened my mouth and the wrong words have come out a time or two.
Below is a list of things I have learned over the years of what not to say in times of stress, along with biblical wisdom for why these words would best be left unsaid.
