Husband’s and Wives

God created marriage when he said it was not good for Adam to be alone and made them male and female in Genesis. He left precepts (guidelines for marriage in the bible).

Be Content With Your Wife

“Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth” Proverbs 5:18 (KJV).

Be Faithful

“And this second thing you do. You cover the LORD’s altar with tears, with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering or accepts it with favor from your hand. 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. 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. “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the LORD, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the LORD of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless” Malachi 2:13-16 (ESV).

Also Proverbs 5:18; Ecclesiastes 9:9; Song of Solomon 4:12 tells husbands to rejoice with the wife of his youth, it means appreciate her, value her, celebrate her, laugh with her and love her.

Husband’s and Wives

I’ve heard it said that marriage doesn’t come with a manual, not true. God had laid down guidelines, but either the husband or wife or both refuses to comply seeking to follow the path of culture or the norm. When you follow God’s way you have a marriage made in heaven enjoyed on earth, but it up to you to make the necessary change!

rose-3063284_640What I’ve observed is a husband expecting so much from his wife and giving her nothing or hardly anything in return or a wife doing the same to her husband. This is abuse.

As with anything when you misuse and abuse it, it becomes of no value to the abuser and both parties err here.

Do you love, appreciate and value your wife?

Do you love, value and appreciate your husband?

If you responded Yes, to the question. Do they know it? How do you show your spouse that you love, value and appreciate them?

Going back to that marriage manual, have you read the above scriptures? Read them and measure your marriage success by them and if you’re still sceptical read Ephesians Chapter 5: 22-32 (this is the bedrock scripture for Love Nurture).

Don’t seek to be like other husbands or wives. just seek to be the best husband and wife for your own spouse. This is the start of real transformation and a God centred marriage.

Put your thoughts below and remember to keep it honest.

Going Out on a Limb

‘…Risk your life and get more than you ever dreamed…’

As an Iowa farm boy, Robert Schuller remembers how his dad needed every particle of grain from the previous year’s crop to feed his livestock. Nevertheless, there was always a little corner of the corn bin he refused to touch. When Schuller said, ‘Dad, you still have grain in there,’ his father would reply, ‘That’s next year’s seed.’ And when spring came he planted it. Schuller writes: ‘Suppose he’d Continue reading Going Out on a Limb

Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

Acts 5:29 New International Version (NIV)
“Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!”

Too often our actions are dictated by a misguided need to please others. We care so much about what they think that with every step we take we look over our shoulder to see whether they’re smiling or frowning.

Understand this: if you’re always looking for people’s approval, you’re not looking where you’re going and eventually you’ll hit a wall or trip over your own two feet. The Bible says, ‘…We ought to obey God rather than men.’ What do you think will happen if you open your mouth and stand up for yourself?

The truth is that people who don’t respect your rights and honour your wishes are not worth your time or effort. Nor are they worthy of a long-drawn-out discussion; just say goodbye! (We’re not talking about your marriage or children.) 😀

Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

When the land became too small for the flocks of Abraham and Lot to graze together, strife broke out. Abraham loved his nephew Lot, but he realised he could no longer live in this situation. So he said, ‘…Please separate from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left’ (Genesis 13:9 NKJV).

How does their story end? Lot chose the best grazing land close to Sodom, and as a result everything he worked for went up in smoke. But Abraham, who always sought to please God, ended up not only being blessed himself, but being a blessing to the nations of the world. So the word for you today is—God wants to set you free from people pleasing.

Argument Free MarriageIs an argument-free marriage possible? Fawn Weaver’s answer is yes, absolutely, even when one or both partners are strong willed, independent, and opinionated.

Chapter by brief chapter, she offers fresh perspectives and practical strategies for communicating effectively, building understanding, and defusing anger while at the same time nurturing honesty, vulnerability, and mutual support.

Are You A Master or Slave?

“The first responsibility of every parent is to build a financial wall around their children” – Jim Rohn.

The following article describes my sentiments exactly:

Are You A Master or Slave?

In cities and towns throughout America, there exist thousands of slave labor camps. Near these camps, which weave in and out of cities and rural communities are settlements where the slaves live. Each morning, these slaves move “herd-like” from their homes and into their assigned places of labor. Each one arrives at his or her station by 7:30 a.m. where they report to their masters for their day’s duties. Then they remain chained to certain tasks until 5:00 p.m. when they are released. These slaves have no choice on how many hours they must labor sometimes they are required to work overtime until their master tells them when they may leave.

Year after year, they are told when to take their vacation, for how long, and when they must return. They have little choice as to how much money they earn. They are allowed very little time for lunch and coffee breaks during these labor hours. They remain in their chains with great fear because the Masters can punish them with the “lay-off” whip. It is said that even some slaves that are good and faithful have felt the sting of the whip. Day by day, year by year, they toil until the master decides that it is time for them to stop working. He then releases them to the retirement camps, where they are forced to sit idle and wait for death. It’s a well-known fact that the old slaves that try to work are sometimes whipped with the “stop-your-pension” whip.

I know these slave camps really exist, for I am a free man who lives among the slaves. I am in business for myself and I answer to no one… I rise in the morning and make my schedule. I decide my own hours; I can even sleep-in late while the slaves are at work. I can vacation when, where, and for how long I please. I am free to take my coffee and lunch break when I decide, and of course I decide my own pay check, because I am not a slave. I can choose to work when and where I please and with whom I please. I am free to stay in the city for as long as I want or to move on to greener pastures if I decide to.

I have seen many slaves trade one master for another, thinking somehow their life will be different. There is a ray of hope for the slave, though. He or she can buy his or her own freedom. The cost is not high, yet it seems high to those who don’t have the courage to pay the price. What is the price? One must be willing to be one’s own master! Author—Chris Carley.

I’ve been listening to Zig Ziglar’s teaching, ‘See you at the top’ where he tells a few stories highlighting the keys to success and the attitude that brings it about. The key attitude is your willingness to do what many others will not do after the height of competition during the week. Zig says: “You don’t pay the price of success you enjoy the price of success!” To enjoy the price of success follow the link here
