Number One Quality To Look Out For. Do you really want to know? Having been married for 24 years, I can tell you that quality is Meekness! It is one quality that will help your relationship last longer! Meekness means being submissive, and teachable. It does not mean being weak or weak-willed; rather, it is strength under control. The dictionary says that meekness can be seen 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:
1Pe 3:3-4 (KJV)  
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.

Number One Quality To Look Out For

Here the scriptures advise that besides beauty, which is evident in adorning the hair, use of jewelry, and nice wear, let there be an adorning of the heart as well–this is an ornament of MEEKNESS (or being MEEK). You see, we all come into relationships and marriages with baggage–unwanted thoughts and feelings 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.

To be teachable and submissive is the only way to make it in a relationship or marriage.  A hard posture and statue-like stance will almost always destroy any relationship or marriage. Flexibility and willingness to adjust and learn new things will go a long way to add spice and fun to your relationship or marriage. Beware of opinionated, stubborn, and unwilling to change-partners!

Even as a child of God, your success is predicated on the continual renewal of your mind with the word of God. This constant transformation has to be taking place. That is why you go to church; that’s why we send you KHC devotional daily; that’s why you should read your Bible daily.

Number One Quality To Look Out For

2Co 3:18 (KJV)  

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.

If you are already in a relationship or married, that is one way to start changing. You cannot change your lover or spouse; if you attempt it, you will be frustrated. 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!
Psa 25:9 (KJV)  
The meek will He guide in judgment: and the meek will He teach his way.

The meek person will always rise to the top in any situation.
Psalms 147:6   (KJV)
The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.

The point is that you should look out for a meek lover.

Beware of any lover who doesn’t want to be taught, who is not submissive to any authority, and that his or her parents cannot talk to.

One of the saddest statements I have heard in counseling sessions was when a person said their spouse doesn’t listen to anybody, not even their parents!

Do not marry anybody who is not accountable to someone! If you do, you are on your own!

Who do you report Them to when there are issues?

Good Morning!
