WHO IS RESPONSIBLE OF YOUR FAMILY LOVE /CONFLICT -7-❓
1 Peter 3:7
Marriage was instituted by God and can be defined as a legal union of a man and a woman, based on mutual consent, to form a family. Hebrews 13:4 refers to it as honourable and Proverbs 18:22 says finding a wife is finding a good thing which attracts God’s Favour. Today’s text, among others, gives the recipe for a happy marriage. Thus, any Happy marriage will require genuine and agape love; while divorce, adultery and treachery are forbidden. A happy marriage will make a happy home and children will be raised in godliness and moral rectitude.
In our second passage, Peter enjoins wives to be godly in character, reverencing their husbands like Sarah did Abraham, calling him Lord. Husband are to live with the understanding of their wives as weaker vessel prone to making mistake especially with their mouths. They should honour, cherish, celebrate and not be harsh and wicked to their wives either by beating them, abusing them or denying them love and care.
A healthy relationship in marriage attracts divine blessings, especially, where couples are used to transparency, godliness, togetherness and praying together. The opposite will be the case where couples fight, cheat on each other don’t love each other, are not transparent to each other and don’t pray together.
The wife is by God’s plan, a suitable or destiny helper to the husband. That informed the saying, “Behind a successful man there is a woman.” However, only a wise woman helps her husband to succeed in life (Prov.14:1)
No marriage can be happy where husbands and wives don’t know God, Submit to Him as their LORD and follow the teachings of the Bible in their marriage.
Make a commitment as a couple today, to love each other, pray together always and you will be amazed at the blessing that will come your way.
CONTROLLING THOUGHTS :
God designed marriage to be a healthy relationship.
Lord, forgive all our shortcomings as a couple, help us not to fail you Amen.
