No More Selfishness Towards My Lover

Hello and good morning! I’ll pick up where I left off yesterday.

We started with some prayer topics that every couple should pray, and we looked at two of them yesterday. We continue from there.

3. Remove selfishness from my heart.

This is another prayer that every couple and singles should say together. Selfishness simply implies failing to consider your spouse/fiancee. In what ways may couples be self-centered? Let me name a few.

Gal 5:17 
For there is a root of sinful self-interest in us that is at odds with a free spirit, just as the free spirit is incompatible with SELFISHNESS. These two ways of life are antithetical, so that you cannot live at times one way and at times another way according to how you feel on any given day.

No More Selfishness Towards My Lover

a. Communication selfishness

You enjoy talking to the whole world except your loved one. That is inappropriate!.

You simply forget to converse with your spouse! You have no recollection of it. It’s understandable if you don’t talk to or call others very often. But don’t you think something is amiss when you virtually live on Whats App or Messenger, chatting up the entire world except your spouse or loved one?

You absolutely must change your approach! Allow your spouse to be your biggest fan! The most important conversations on your phone should be with your spouse, not with an old acquaintance or family member.

Pastor, we see every day! It makes no difference. Protect your marriage by doing whatever you can. 
You cannot truly say you tried unless you have given it your all and made some mindset modifications.

The same way for singles in courtship. Decide to ignore the whole world rather than your lover.

b. Shopping selfishness

Do you go shopping and just buy your things, fully forgetting about your spouse? That’s not quite fair!

Even if the shopping is for you, make sure you grab something for your spouse. This is how you keep the flames alive.

Dear husbands, don’t buy all the electronics unless you also buy some lady stuff. Dear lady, don’t get all the powders and make-up kits unless you also buy some guy items! Be prudent.

Pray that God should remove selfishness from your heart in every way!
