Mercy in marriage.

We adopt the posture of being willing to experience sin against us as part of building a God-glorifying marriage in a fallen world.  Kindness says to our spouse, “I know you are a sinner like me and you will sin against me, just like I sin against you.  But I refuse to live defensively with you.  I’m going to live leaning in your direction with a merciful posture that your sin and weakness cannot erase.”

(Dave Harvey, When Sinners Say “I Do”: Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage, pp. 84-85)
