The following is today's devotional from Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
Look up the word complementary in the American Heritage Dictionary.
1. Forming or serving as a complement; completing
2. Supplying mutual needs or offsetting mutual deficiencies.”
The only way two things can be complementary is if they’re different. Each part of a complementary whole adds unique elements the other lacks.
Marriage is one of the greatest expressions of this. Scripture shows us that while men and women have equal worth, value, and dignity before God, He created them different from one another.
Have you been letting differences between you and your spouse irritate you? Do you sometimes wish there were no differences between men and women? Remember, God created you and your mate different for a specific reason. You are a complement to your husband, and he is a complement to you. How can you show respect for his uniqueness and use your strengths to complement him today?
