The Intricacies of Cheating On Your Spouse

The Intricacies of Cheating On Your Spouse

We’ll be considering the intricacies of cheating on your spouse this morning. It is one thing to find it difficult to sin, a situation where you have to really look and search for sin or the tools of sin to compromise, it is another story, another ball game entirely when the sin is so available, staring you in the face, calling and you, pulling you and wooing you with all kind of entreaties. It is one thing to be tempted with the sin that doth not so easily beset you; it is another thing entirely to be poked at by…

Marriage is ‘For Better, For Worse’

Marriage is ‘For Better, For Worse’

We used to hear this phrase about marriage a lot long time ago, but nowadays, we hardly hear such a thing.The world has gone digital, fast and every body seems busy.

While covenant says, I will do this for you because I am committed to you.…

Tomorrow, I will write about what every woman wants 1. A wife, not a knifeThere is a difference between a wife and a knife. A knife cuts and lacerates.

Don’t Let The Devil Steal Your Joy in Marriage

Marriage is often time associated with wine, because our union with our spouse is supposed to bring joy to us. The marriage ceremony itself is a joyous occasion with the bride and groom looking their best. Everyone is happy, lots of food to eat and drinks, music, dancing and the exuberance of finding the love of your life. All these sum up to give joy and excitement. Both for the new couples, the parents, families, the couples’ friends and all. But a few years down the lane we see that joy almost vanished from the face of the once over…

We started on the topic "Five levels of communication" yesterday. We learned how important communication is in marriage.

Five Levels of Communication in Marriage

Five Levels of Communication in Marriage

There are five levels of communication in marriage. Communication is simply talking, but of cause, there are more things involved than just talking. A healthy conversation involves not just what is said but what is heard. In essence, communication is a two-way conversation that involves speaking and hearing. The two spouses must form the conscious habit of allowing the other spouse to express himself or herself. While he/ she speaks, the other partner should be actively listening. Not listening for pleasure, not listening for information but should practice empathic listening. This is putting yourself in the conversation. Trying to understand…

The way Ephesians 5; 25-32 describes. There is nothing wrong in loving your wife. There is nothing wrong in thinking about her. In fact, the scripture advises you do that. Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love (Proverbs 5:18-19 KJV)…

How  To Communicate With Your Spouse

How To Communicate With Your Spouse

How we communicate is very vital. What is being said is important, but how it's been said is equally important. A brother once had a dream, in the dream, he saw that each time we speak to our spouse harshly, it is like using a stick with many thorns to beat them. How true this is. Harsh words will only breed hatred, bitterness, suspicion, rejection and more bitterness. In the beginning, God gave man His presence, work, His Word, to cultivate (the woman), and to provide for her. A man not in the presence of God, cannot have His word,…
