TRUST – Secrets
1 Corinthians 13v6-7 tells us that “love rejoices with the truth” and that it “always trusts”. As wives we should not deliberately and consistently withhold information from our husbands that they should know. Secrets are tiny seeds of deception you will need to water with lies to cover them up.
