- Key biblical principles:
- God is a jealous God (Exo 20:4-5)
- The Bible calls us to have relationships with other brothers and sisters in the Church (Eph 4:7-16; Heb 10:24-25)
- The jealous spouse should understand that while there is such a thing as godly jealousy, there is also ungodly jealousy. It is wrong to prevent your spouse from having godly relationships with other believers.
- The other spouse should consider whether or not he or she is doing anything to inflame jealousy in the husband/wife.
