BLIND SPOTS IN MARRIAGE

A blind spot is typically an area or subject about which one is uninformed. It is also used to describe the side that is slightly behind a driver’s field of vision that is not reflected in the vehicle’s rear view mirror.

Your blind spot is that  area of your life which could be a contrary habit,  character or action that you cannot see or perceive negatively.

We must realise that each and every one of us have a blind spot. Leaders, children, spouses or relatives may have blind spots. There is an African saying that whilst you can see the back of someone’s head,  yours can be seen by another person behind you.

How you react to the blind spot of your spouse is very important because the person cannot see what you are seeing. If not handled delicately, pointing out your spouses blind spot may be seen as criticism, nagging or complaining.

I suggest we prayerfully address the  BLIND SPOTS in our spouses so that the Holy Spirit can take control and intervene as we tactfully and lovingly bring our spouses to realise some unpleasant things in their lives so they can make amends.

Each person should also be humble enough to receive corrections in the spirit of love and progress.

A driver that does not take that extra glance backwards to see what is in his blind spot before swerving or changing lanes runs the risk of colliding with another vehicle.

May your marriages last in Jesus name.

Shalom
