I have an obsession. I love to play Words With Friends, and I usually have dozens of games going at once. I’m slowly getting better too. My average score has been steadily climbing because I’ve learned lots of new words by playing with others who are better at the game than I am. I realized there are lessons we can glean about marriage through this phone app.
What Words With Friends taught me about marriage:
- It’s to your advantage to choose your words carefully.
- It’s best to wait and see what your spouse says first before responding with words of your own.
- It’s not about winning, but about learning new ways to communicate.
- There’s a right and wrong word for every situation. Those who look at all options and are slow to speak will most likely speak wise words.
- You are never too old to grow in your communication skills.
- Focus. Focus. Focus.
- The words you say are connected to the words you hear. Make sure they are of value and worth speaking.
- Once you choose your words you can’t take them back.
- Even when you lose, you win because God uses the set back to teach you how to be a better spouse.
- Enjoy the interaction with your best friend. It’s a privilege to be in this “game” together.
