Completely

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
—Ephesians 4:12

My husband bought a very thoughtful and loving card for me, along with some gifts. 

The card had a gem heart on it that was visible through a circular opening. 

The occasion?

Our wedding anniversary. 

Ephesians 4:12 encourages us to be completely humble.

Have I been completely humble in my marriage?

No.

The scripture also says to be  gentle. 

Have I been gentle in my actions and words?

Sometimes, yes. 

Other times, however, I haven’t. 

Have I been patient with my husband?

Have I always found myself to be “bearing” with him in love?

No.

Not always…

I will never be perfect, but I can always try to respond in the way God wants me to:

Humbly. 

Patiently.

Gently. 

After all, I do want my attitude to be right in my marriage when God looks through my life and sees my heart.
