What is that one quality you should watch for in a prospective lover or spouse?

There are many qualities, and there are many attraction points, but one thing you should take into cognizance is what I want to talk about this morning.

This quality can preserve a couple and make their marriage last longer. I am talking about the quality of meekness.

What is meekness?

Meekness simply means being submissive, being teachable. Meekness is not weakness, rather it is strength under control

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary describes meekness as having or showing a quiet and gentle nature; not wanting to fight or argue with other people.

Let’s take a look at the scriptures:

Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;  [4]  But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a MEEK and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

1Pe 3:3-4 (KJV)

The scriptures advise that aside from the pulchritude, which is evident in adorning of the hair, use of jewelry, and nice wears, let there be an adorning of the heart as well, that is an ornament of MEEK and quiet spirit.

You see, we all come into relationships with baggage, baggage from the past, issues from past emotional upheavals, tensions arising from strained relationships in the past, highly opinionated postures emanating from parental upbringing, warped ideas resulting from emotional, verbal, sexual, and physical abuses, and the list goes on.

The only way we can survive in a relationship or marriage with all the undesirable and irritating baggage is to be MEEK!

To be teachable and submissive. That is the only way to make it in relationship and marriage

A hard posture, statue-like stance in relationships will always almost destroy any courtship. Flexibility and willingness to adjust and learn new things will go a long way to add spice and fun to your relationship or marriage.

Even as a child of God, your success is predicated on continual renewal of mind, with the word of God. The word of God is the key to learning meekness. There is a change and a transformation that come into your life as you behold the word of God.

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2Co 3:18 (KJV)

If you are already in a relationship, that is one way to start changing. You cannot change your lover. If you attempt it, you will be frustrated.  You are not equipped to change anybody. But with the word of God and its study, anybody can make a change in his or her life.

God loves those who are meek and teachable!

I am meek and teachable for my lover

Oh Lord, give me a teachable heart.

1Pe 3:4 (KJV) But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a MEEK and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
