Three Causes Of Unfaithfulness in Marriage

Three Causes Of Unfaithfulness in Marriage

Three Causes Of Unfaithfulness in Marriage It’s a sad reality today that adultery is right in the church. Professing believers, deacons and even pastors are flagrantly indulging in adulterous escapades, resulting in unnecessary and unprecedented headaches and agony in families. An affair is more or less a sexual relationship, romantic friendship, or passionate attachment between two people without the knowledge of the other spouse. Nobody is totally exempt from adultery. This morning, I am going to attempt to identify a few causes why couples often resort to cheating and unfaithfulness. This is not an attempt to justify this obviously sinful…

Dear Couples, Avoid Nagging in Your Marriage

There is a habit that is so unhealthy for any marriage. Do all you can to avoid it like a plague! It’s called Nagging! One of the persons you should respect when he is offering marital advice is King Solomon. You will never be able to break his record. With a thousand women in his harem, no living human being has been able to break that record. He was simply in a class of his own when it comes to women.

Outward Beauty Versus Inner Beauty

Outward Beauty Versus Inner Beauty

Outward Beauty Versus Inner Beauty There is something about that which comes from within. The pulchritude is that which is seen, but is often a total departure from the true reflection within. And yet the reality is that the external alone cannot be used to conclude on the entity. Adam saw bone of his bones and flesh of his flesh, not just flesh alone! Dwelling on the flesh, the externals alone is a gross mistake in decoding the personality. What makes a person includes the deep things, the values, the happenstances in the realm of the mind and events that…

Be A Good Influencer To Your Husband

Be A Good Influencer To Your Husband

Be A Good Influencer To Your Husband Women are interestingly influential. Ok, the man is the head of the house, agreed, but the woman wields a lot of influence in the home. Satan wanted to get to man, he went through the woman. He knew if he could get the woman to eat the fruit, the rest is history with the man, and that was exactly what happened. We see this in Genesis 3:6 When the Woman saw that the tree looked like good eating and realized what she would get out of it—she'd know everything!—she took and ate the…

This One Thing Will Always Birth Crises In Marriage I have counseled hundreds of couples in the last twenty-two years. Marriage has always been and will always work. There are things you do and it is guaranteed that the marriage will work. There are things you ignore and it is sure that crises will emanate.

The Husband’s Baggage And The Wife’s Luggage

The Husband’s Baggage And The Wife’s Luggage Andy and Sandy were so much in love in their courtship days. They were the quintessential campus love birds. Their love was palpable.

Soon they will be able to do anything they want! Gen 11:6 (GNB) God said nothing will be impossible for them because of…

Do Not Dance Where Angels Fear To Tread

Do Not Dance Where Angels Fear To Tread

The race is never to the swift. The battle is not to the strong. We are only helped of God. This is not to disregard the significance of labour, for there is dignity in labour. However, and at the end of the day, the realization sinks, that it is all by the help of God. Let’s take a look at the scripture this morning. He also installed the latest in military technology on the towers and corners of Jerusalem for shooting arrows and hurling stones. He became well known for all this—a famous king. Everything seemed to go his way.…

This Is What Happens To Couples Who Don’t Cooperate

This Is What Happens To Couples Who Don’t Cooperate The home was hot, and yet it was really cold outside. Sad miens, sadistic motions, palpitating hearts resulting from acute bitterness serenaded the house. Music has disappeared from their hearts and in its place is a dirge composing itself. Mr. and Mrs. Jebolade are at it again. The usual bickering have ensued. This will lead to unending quarrels, exchange of bitter words, reclusion into their shells, and eventually strife and animosity that will last for days. Both of them would feel they were right and would insist on their rights. As…

Life is a journey that is taken on the road of words. Your words literally will pave way for you to take in life. Wrong words will dig dangerous potholes into the road of life.

How Couples Can Respond To God’s Training

How Couples Can Respond To God’s Training

In today's devotional, we're looking at how we as couples can respond to God's training. Marriage is an institution, the first institution God created. In institutions, we go to learn. In effect, marriage is a school, a major one at that. It is probably the only institution where you get your certificate before the learning begins. On the wedding day, you get to receive your wedding certificate, and then the real school begins. Especially as it concerns male and female differences, a lot of couples are in for a rude shock. There will be mistakes that are done in marriage…

How To Be There for Each Other

How To Be There for Each Other

It is often said that a friend in need is a friend indeed. The value of friendship is known in hard and tough times. Nothing is as soothing as when a friend speaks to you in your down moments. When his or her words are like cold water to a thirsty soul. If the effect of a friend could be that felt, how much more is the effect of a spouse. Of course, our spouse is supposed to be our best friend with who we are vulnerable, with who we can share the joy and the privilege of being naked…

How To keep Love Ablaze In Our Marriage

Before we can talk of keeping love ablaze, we have to talk of couples living true to their covenant responsibilities. First, we should know that our marriages have certain mandate in the heart of God to fulfill. And here’s a second offense: You fill the place of worship with your whining and sniveling because you don’t get what you want from God. Do you know why? Simple. Because God was there as a witness when you spoke your marriage vows to your young bride, and now you’ve broken those vows, broken the faith-bond with your vowed companion, your covenant wife.…
