Marriage 514

A quality home is a home where the husband and wife have created time to rest. A man cannot come back from work with his briefcase to meet a rambling wife talking about bills; he will never want to come home willingly. Remember that not to be happy … is not to be grateful. Therefore the couple must be skillful in knowing when they need rest, the children must understand when parents need rest before asking for school fees and monthly allowance.

A glorious marriage won’t drop from heaven; it only becomes the portion of the husband and wife who deliberately get committed to the success of such marriage.  A glorious home is not a product of chance or luck.  Prayer is good but not enough to have a glorious home. Rather, it is a product of labour.

You must make yourself available to your spouse, whenever he or she needs you. No matter how choked up you are in activities, you must create room for your spouse by making yourself available. When you discover that you no longer tell your secret to your spouse but shift to opposite sex, you are already on your way to marital commotion.

Spouse, to sustain your marriage, you need to schedule outings, as if you were dating again. Do not allow months to pass without spending at least several hours together on a date.

Wives, build up your husband’s ego: honour and respect him. Husbands, treat your wife like the queen you want her to be.

Finally, to fulfil God’s purpose for your marriage the first step is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Number two: To be a keeper and a solution provider requires the grace of God and to access that grace, you must be born again. If you want to be born again you need to say this prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my Sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
