We will be playing the ostrich if we say that spouses don’t have misunderstandings, no matter how mild. Misunderstandings happen because spouses will not always see things from the same perspective. When differences in perspectives come out and we, somehow, … Continue reading

Christian Courtship.

Christian Courtship.

Hebrews 13:4: Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Hebrews 13:4: Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Memory Verse:
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge
Hebrews 13:4

 
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

Text:
Genesis 29:11-20
11 Then Jacob kissed Rachel and began to weep aloud.

12 He had told Rachel that he was a relative of her father and a son of Rebekah. So she ran and told her father.

13 As soon as Laban heard the news about Jacob, his sister’s son, he hurried to meet him. He embraced him and kissed him and brought him to his home, and there Jacob told him all these things.

14 Then Laban said to him, “You are my own flesh and blood.”

Jacob Marries Leah and Rachel
After Jacob had stayed with him for a whole month,

15 Laban said to him, “Just because you are a relative of mine, should you work for me for nothing? Tell me what your wages should be.”

16 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.

17 Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful.

18 Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, “I’ll work for you seven years in return for your younger daughter Rachel.”

19 Laban said, “It’s better that I give her to you than to some other man. Stay here with me.”

20 So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her.

Introduction:
The Christian courtship is a period that is often set aside for the would-be Christian couple to know themselves better. It must also, be emphasized that within this period, the intending couple must not defile themselves an should adhere strictly to the moral and spiritual standards set by the Church. It is a period within which the families of both parties will get to know themselves, and the couple to be will have the opportunity of knowing whether they are compatible, or share the same visions, hopes and aspiration that they will need to carry them through their lifetime.
Amos 3:3
Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

 

Importance of Christian Courtship.
1. It Allows The Intending Couple To Lay A Solid Biblical Foundation For Their Family
1 Corinthians 3:10-12
By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care.

11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.

12 If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,

2. Faith Of Both In The Lord Is Put To Test.
Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

3. It Marks The Beginning Of Adjustments For Both, Through Prayer To Accommodate One Another.

4. The Families Begin To Get Closer To Each Other.

5. The Reality Of The Fact That Marriage Was Ordained By God And The Fact That It Is Death Do Us Part Is Imparted Into The Intending Couple

Genesis 2:18-24
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”

19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.

20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals.

But for Adam no suitable helper was found.

21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh.

22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

23 The man said,

“This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called ‘woman,’
for she was taken out of man.”

24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

 

 

Duration of Christian Courtship.
1. A period of between 6 months-1 year is recommended to avoid temptation

2. If too long, it can lead to immorality
Colossians 2:21.
Touch not; taste not; handle not

 

3. If too long, it can lead to breaking the proposal particularly when the intending partners are not stable.

 

Conclusion:
Christian Courtship is highly recommended provided the intending couple will regimentally follow the tenets as laid down by God through the Holy Spirit a good courtship period backed with Church Counselling lessons will help in settling some of the usual frictions occurring during the first few years of marriage

1 John 4:7-8
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1 Peter 3:7
Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.

Hebrews 13:4
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

2 Timothy 2:22
So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.

1 Corinthians 13:8
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

Malachi 2:15
Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth.

Malachi 2:14
But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Exodus 20:12
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

Dear Mum & Dad,
Please, stop teaching your daughter that it’s her job to fix her man! Who will fix her, when she is busy fixing another?

 
Mummy, stop telling her that she’s the home builder! Tell her that she will work hand in hand with her husband to build her home.

 
Our society today is littered with over-burdened wives, mothers, sisters and daughters. They are wearied, they are stressed and drained, from having to fix themselves and as well fix an adult who ought to be fixing himself and fixing things around the house.

 
Look around you, you’ve succeeded in raising strong daughters and weak sons…. Sons who grew to become nonchalant men, men who rather feast while the women work.

 
Mum, teach your son that it’s his job to provide for his family, totally, exclusively, that way, he won’t expect his woman to share family responsibilities with him. When such expectations aren’t there, he will very much appreciate any input she makes.

 
Teach your son that he is the sole protector of his home that will make him not run off to chase pleasure with the idea that “my wife will handle it”.

 
Mum, teach your son that loving his wife is a daily affair, and he must make her feel loved, in every sense of the word….

 
Dad, make your son understand that he’s not done anything for his children, until he loves their mother fully.

 
Dad, raise your son, by loving his mother purely… When he sees you doing it right, he will do it more right in his marriage.

 

 

 

 

Dad, teach your son never to depend on a woman. That way, he will never look at a woman as his support, he will put in all his best to be there for his family.

 

 

 

 
Mom and Dad, raise your sons, to be the picture of the husbands you desire for your daughters!

 

 

 

Thank You Jesus.

Dear Singles! Marriage & Shoe Sizes!

MARRIAGE

Marriage Ring

Marriage Ring

“MARRIAGE is like a shoe. When you wear oversize, be ready to drag it along throughout life, and when you wear under-size be ready to feel the pains throughout life”.
One thing about marriage is that you don’t drop your shoe or remove it at any point, no matter how painful or how stressful it is. This is why it is necessary to know these points…….

 

 

 
Dear Singles, When you are ready to buy your own shoes please take note of these three things:

 

 

 
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE: Do not look for the beautiful ones, the nice ones or the cheap ones. Look for the one that is your size. Not every handsome, wealthy or intelligent guy is for you, not every beautiful woman is for you. Look for the one that is meant for you, the one that aligns with your values and beliefs, the one who you meet at your life’s journey. It is important to know where you’re going in life before you think of getting a wife or meeting your husband.

 

 

 

 
POSITION: All sizes of shoes are not placed in the same place. There is a place for court shoes, laced up shoes, sport footwear, snickers etc. We have Children sizes, young people’s sizes and the adult sizes. Know where to get your own shoe. Your size cannot be everywhere my brother, your type cannot be everywhere my sister. You cannot be a Christian, and be looking for a wife material at a club. Your wife or husband can’t just be everywhere. Stick to your values and therein you shall find someone like you, but when your values are not defined anyone can just match you. Discover yourself and define your values.

 

 

 

 
PERCEPTION: In this kind of shoe purchasing enterprise, you are not permitted to try the shoe before you buy. This is why it is important to seek guidance and counseling, from people who have bought shoes before or are into the business of directing people to the right shoes (Pastors and Relationship coaches). And most importantly to avoid much time wasting time, simply consult the SHOE MANUFACTURER to tell you your size (GOD ALMIGHTY ).

 

 

 

 
“You do not prepare for wedding, you prepare for marriage.” Ladies these days get so motivated when they attend wedding and they will quickly want to say “yes” to that guy.
Wait!!! It is not just the wedding oh. The wedding is just one day. After the wedding WHAT NEXT?

 

 

 
Finally, it is not something you rush to the market and just pick a shoe because you like or can purchase it. Ask questions…
-Where is this shoe made from? (Background)
-What’s the size? (Values)
-How much? (His/Her interest)
-How long will it last? (His/Her Character)
-Who made it? (Is He/She of the same faith, talking about compatibility)

 

 

 

 
-Will it match me? (This is whether He/She loves you and will accept you the way you are).
Dear one, remember many are dragging their foot and they would hardly reach their destinies, many are feeling endless pains and wish they could pull off the shoes but no way!!! I have seen people with beautiful shoes and when they show you their foot, you will see the blisters and scars.

 

 

 

 
Beloved, it is not about the physical, but the size, you can’t know the size from afar so come close, build a relationship first but remember ‘you are not permitted to try it before you buy it’.

 

 

 

 
And for those who have purchased the wrong shoes, you can still make it your size again if you would just consult the Manufacturer and let Him have His way in your marriage.
God bless us all.

John_13-34: A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

John_13-34: A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

WHAT YOU SOW IS WHAT YOU REAP….!

 

 

 

 

Many women wants the kind of husbands they see in the movies, my question is, are you the kind of wife in the movie? Do you treat your husband at home the same way the woman in the movie treats her husband? What you sow, you reap, give unto others what you want others to give you. You can not plant evil and be expecting to reap good.
Don’t be careless about your husband, give him the best treatment, don’t allow another woman give him a good treatment, don’t allow another woman play on his weaknesses. You take charge, care for him, show him love like that woman in the movie.
Don’t say because your husband is born again, or is a minister you treat him anyhow, you don’t pamper him….look here, no one knows tomorrow, he can backslide; he is not an angel. The fact that he is a child of God is the more reason you need to be careful, satan is at the door looking for ways to get him, he, satan, points out every one of your mistakes to him every minute, comparing you with the women of the world. It is your duty as his wife to help him stay true to his faith by the way you handle him.
Many men lose their salvation because of their wives’s behaviour, they just could not take it any more, so they pay attention to that soft spoken daughter of satan, whose only business is to destroy your husband and your home, she presents herself as an angel because of the way she treats him.

 

 

 
Madam, your husband is in your life for a reason. Let your life show him Christ daily.

 

 

 

 

Thank You Jesus.

Jesus Is The Bridegroom.

Biblical Concept On Marriage

Biblical Concept On Marriage

And Jesus said to them, “Can the friends of the bridegroom mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast.” – Matthew 9:15

 

 
Let me start off with a question: What is more than exciting to an engaged couple and their loved ones than the arrival of their wedding day?

 
The moment the groom gets to see his bride for the first time, the reading of the vows, and their first embrace as one bring such a flood of love and completeness that often, even the groom sheds a tear. The purity and joy of the union is so powerful!
Ya’ know, Jesus is called a bridegroom, with us as His bride, many times in the Bible. This imagery is a perfect picture of the anticipation and eagerness that Jesus has for us—His bride!

 

 
Jesus longs for you to come to Him and to be united with Him. He is not distant, difficult, or unkind. He never numbers your faults and He will not focus on your mistakes. Jesus is waiting for you to see the love that He and Father God have for you!
When Jesus promised that nothing would ever separate us from the love of our Father, it was not based on our ability to earn it. Instead, it was based on the power of His love to break through every wall and every obstacle… just like a husband will always do for his wife!

 

 
Celebrate your relationship with Jesus, every day. I am praying, today, that you hold your marriage with Jesus and the Lord in your heart, and that you covet His heart just as He covets yours!

Is Your Marriage Fulfilling God’s Purpose. Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye.

Hebrews 13:4: Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Hebrews 13:4: Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Memorise

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Read

1 Samuel 19:9-12
9. And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.
10. And Saul sought to smite David even to the wall with the javelin; but he slipped away out of Saul’s presence, and he smote the javelin into the wall: and David fled, and escaped that night.
11. Saul also sent messengers unto David’s house, to watch him, and to slay him in the morning: and Michal David’s wife told him, saying, If thou save not thy life to night, to morrow thou shalt be slain.
12. So Michal let David down through a window: and he went, and fled, and escaped.

Message

Let me start by clarifying something about being alone. Being alone could be in two ways, by solitude and by loneliness. Solitude is by being alone on purpose; an intentional separation from people for a period, such a person can be alone by the river side or watching television without being lonely. There is a biblical basis for solitude (Exodus 33:7,11; Luke 5:16; Luke 22:41), therefore, solitude could be a good thing. However, loneliness is usually never desired. Prolonged loneliness may sometimes lead to depression. Being alone is the very fast aspect of creation that met with God’s disapproval and His harsh judgment of not being good, and 1 Corinthians 1:25 says,
“Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”
Therefore, God’s assessment of “being alone” should be taken seriously. God in His infinite wisdom decided to solve the problem of being alone by providing a “help meet for the man”. A perfect companion that is suitable for him, one that will cancel out the negative effects of “being alone”. Now, fulfilling the purpose of God in life in general and marriage in particular depends largely on our understanding and total submission to the manufacturer’s instructions. A simple, direct, Holy Ghost inspired and time tested meaning of this passage is clear to all. Help refers broadly to aid or assistance, the word “helper” may connote subordinate, but does not necessarily imply inferiority. Hosea 13:9 refers to God as Israel’s helper, also, Genesis 2:18-25, describes how God provided the suitable helper for the man.
The declaration of Adam, that Eve is the bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh is a pointer to the fact that marriage creates the closets of all human relationships and should be cherished as such. We are to note also that only Eve was created and not Several Eves or another Adam. This is the confirmation that God established heterosexual monogamy as the divine pattern for marriage at creation. However, the languages of Ephesians 5:22-25 is probably clearer on the God given roles of husbands and wives.
“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;”
Every child of God that is determined to fulfil God’s purpose must live according to the order of marriage ordained by Almighty God. Marriage is the foundation of life according to the Bible. Consequently, marital failure may as well translate to failure in life and ministry.

Prayer Point

Father, I believe in the institution of marriage according to the Bible, please help me to build a strong, happy and joyful home in the mighty name of Jesus.

According to the administrative office of the building, this church might look very stylish but it also blends with tradition. In tradition, the bride needs to wear high-heels to tread on tiles and then throw away the shattered pieces before stepping in the bridegroom’s family, which signifies the end to past misfortunes and the beginning of a better life.

Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.
Hosea 4:17

Read: Deuteronomy 4:15-20
15 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:
16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
17 The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,
18 The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:
19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
20 But the LORD hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day.

Pastor E A Adeboye. Daddy G O

In Genesis 48:13-20, Ephraim experienced a positive switch at the expense of his brother, Manasseh. He was last but became first. He was supposed to get the lesser blessing, but he got the greater portion. From today, you shall experience a positive switch in Jesus’ Name. Situations surrounding you shall suddenly change from bad to fair, fair to good, good to better and better to best. You are in for a great surprise this season.

However, looking at the situation of Ephraim down the line, we see that it is one thing to experience a positive switch, and it is another thing to sustain it. After inheriting his elder brother’s blessing, and having prospered above him in multiple folds, Ephraim could not manage his blessing. After he experienced unprecedented success, Ephraim neglected God and created idols for himself. Hosea 4:17 says:
“Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.”
This Scripture says he was joined to his idols. In other words, one way to frustrate God’s grace upon your life is to join yourself to idols. To “join” is another way of saying “to be married to” something you love so much. What is that idol taking the love, attention, devotion and time meant for God in your life?

The idols could mean real, tangible symbols or items to which you devote your worship, trust and love. Not too long ago, some people were said to have discovered some magical river with healing or miraculous powers, and so many people went there. If you are a true believer in Christ, you can never be found in such a place. An apparition appears on a particular building and people start visiting the place for prayers; they must have thrown away the scripture found in John 4:21. These are all idolatrous practices. Also, the use of talismanic rings and amulets, rosaries, scapulars, coloured candles and religious objects for protection or good luck are all part of idolatry. If you are joined to idols, you cannot remain joined to Jesus Christ; He will simply step out before you merge with idols. What is that idol making you to rubbish God’s goodness in your life? For some, it is their spouse. If you love your spouse above God, you are provoking God’s jealousy. Eventually, Ephraim became desolate (Hosea 5:9). That is what happens to idolaters. At some point, your idols will desert you. Be wise today!

Enjoy True Spiritual Intimacy In Your Marriage

Enjoy True Spiritual Intimacy In Your Marriage

Our Marriage is forever (Photo by Pastor Davis)

Our Marriage is forever (Photo by Pastor Davis)

A strong, healthy marriage doesn’t just include physical intimacy between a husband and wife, but also spiritual intimacy.

What is spiritual intimacy? It is a sense of unity and mutual commitment to God’s purpose for our lives and marriage, and respect for the special dreams of each other’s hearts. It’s the greatest depth of intimacy we experience in marriage.

Intimacy Necessitates Value, Energy, Sacrifice, and Trust. Let’s explore those four areas as they relate to spiritual intimacy.

Value: “I value God’s purpose for your life and the dreams of your heart.”

In marriage, a husband and wife are a team. One is not more important than the other, and together God uses both to accomplish His purposes. That means a husband and wife must each work to help their partner reach their full potential. They are dream-makers for each other, not dream-breakers.

Energy: “I commit to pursuing God personally and together to find and fulfill God’s call on my life, your life and our marriage.”

In making this commitment, a husband and wife collaborate to fulfill God’s call on their lives and marriage. This means putting in the work and energy. Pray together. Worship together Seek God together. Retreat together.

Sacrifice: “I sacrifice the desire to only promote myself or to worry about myself.”

Selfishness is a marriage-killer. God put us together to build each other up and to work as a team. This can be a struggle because humans are naturally selfish. That’s why we must sacrifice this innate self-regard. We have to set it aside in order to build true intimacy. Put your spouse first.

Trust: “I will create an atmosphere where you can share your deepest spiritual desires and dreams and know that they’re honored by me.”

A husband must be his wife’s safest place, and the same goes for a wife. Each person in a marriage must be able to share their dreams without worrying those dreams will be shot down, belittled, or ignored.

Husbands, if you are not prepared to honor your wife’s deepest dreams, don’t expect her to open up to you. Wives, your husband will not share his spiritual desires with you if he expects you to devalue them.

Dreams are sensitive things. Research shows that most couples’ worst fights occur on a dream level. You may dream of financial security. You may dream of a loving, orderly home where children are valued by their parents. You may dream of a house filled with peace.

If your spouse dreams of her house being a restful retreat but you are constantly introducing chaos into the home, you’re not just making her anxious. You are actively attacking her dream.

Having a spouse that fights against or somehow damages that desire can be heartbreaking in a marriage. Help each other pursue each other’s dreams. Don’t stand in the way of them.

Value! Energy! Sacrifice! Trust!  Exhibit these behaviors toward your spouse to enjoy true spiritual intimacy in your marriage.

The relationship is very distant (the grandfather of the Woman is a younger brother to the man’s Grandmother and the father of the man is a cousin to the father of the woman i.e 1st cousin While the children of the first cousin are the once that intend to get married) please I really need a clear answer to this question because there are examples of people that were married from their family. Eleazar’s daughters each married first cousins, as they were instructed ( 1 Chronicles 23:22).

See below

Forbidden Marriages Scripture

Between parents and children –Leviticus 18:7-8

Between stepparents and stepchildren- Leviticus 18:8, 17

With your paternal or maternal aunt-Leviticus 18:12-13

With your uncle or aunt –Leviticus 18:14

Between brother and sister and half-brother and half-sister-Leviticus 18:9

Between stepbrothers and stepsisters-Leviticus 18:11

With your daughter-in-law –Leviticus 18:15

With your sister-in-law –Leviticus 18:16

With your granddaughter –Leviticus 18:10

With your step-granddaughter –Leviticus 18:17

However, it’s important to remember that many laws do condemn this type of marriage and Christians are commanded to “Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men” (1 Peter 2:13-15, See also Romans 13:1-2). Please give biblical evidence of your answer.

Thanks

Yours Fan

Multiplicity in Marriage! Differences In Marriage

Colossians_3-12: Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering

Colossians_3-12: Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering

Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another.

Colossians 3:12-13, NKJV

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

The differences between my husband and myself have been the basis for many fights. My husband likes everything in its place while I never even notice when things are a mess. He is very outgoing, able to recall people’s names easily. In contrast, I am almost a recluse and can’t even remember the faces of people I’ve met.

Ephesians_5-2-2: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour

Ephesians_5-2-2: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour

One day, following weeks of tension and fighting triggered by these differences, we began to make a study of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We recognized our own particular spiritual gifts, and they were totally opposite from each other. This led us to recognize other differences, acknowledge those differences by name, learn to accept them in each other, and then grow to appreciate them for the balance they give to our marriage relationship. I cannot adequately convey the blessing this has been, the peace that has resulted, and the love that has increased between us simply because after years of doing it “my way,” we finally followed the Creator’s wise directions for diversity in our marriage.

Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment. No Perfect Marriage

Luke_6-37: Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven

Luke_6-37: Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven

Comparison Shopping By Barbara Rainey

Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment. JOHN 7:24

It’s so easy for a woman to look at her husband and say:

“He’s sure not very _______.”

“He doesn’t _______ or _______ or ________.”

“I wish I was married to someone more like ________.”

But every time you say or even think something along these lines—every time you focus on those inevitable aspects about him that are disappointing or negative—you catch him in a comparison trap. You forget that God has a plan for your man that is different from the one He has for somebody else’s husband. You ignore the fact that your job is to respect him, to be used by God to help reveal that plan in his life, whatever it may be.

When I married Dennis, I had no idea we would end up doing the kinds of things God has led us to do. It hasn’t always been easy to have Dennis Rainey for a husband. It would have been so easy at times to settle back and say, “I wish he was more like so-and-so,” rather than being content with the one God had given me and helping him develop into the man God wanted him to be. There are so many things that Dennis does well. There are a lot of things he doesn’t. But when I’m lasering in on those things he doesn’t do quite so well, I’m expecting him to be someone he’s not. No, he’s not perfect. Neither am I. Nobody is.

But I believe that God can change your heart as He does mine when I slip into seeing only the imperfections. The key is recognizing what you are looking at in his life and being willing to let God adjust your focus from the negative to the positive.

DISCUSS

Spend some time encouraging each other right now. I’m sure both of you could use some building up.

PRAY

Ask God to adjust your view of each other toward something more grateful and positive.
