Our relationship to God is more important than our service to God. Settle matters quickly without delay. 1 Peter 3:7-8 Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
