Clothed with kindness

Researchers from the University of Utah found there’s a price to pay when couples don’t get along. They found that women who buried anger were more likely to succumb to heart disease than wives who were vocal, and that women who were domineering damaged their husbands’ coronary health. A twelve year study of British civil servants yielded similar results. Researchers concluded that those with hostile intimate relationships were much more likely to experience, heart attacks and other heart trouble. So, in this age when we put so much effort into promoting health and wellbeing, we should remember that the most important things are our relationships; and the key to making them healthy is, as the Bible says, to ‘Clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.’
