Some Wrong Attitudes, Resulting To Wrong Marriage

Some Wrong Attitudes, Resulting To Wrong Marriage

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES-

It is in marriage that all our bad attitudes show up. They show up bad that they give an offensive odour literarily, and guess what, your spouse won’t be able to stand it for too long.

Most of the things we can get by with as a single, we won’t be able to get by with them as married couples.

Remember, your mum used to tell you, you were lazy, and it didn’t matter as long as you were single.

Your friends told you, you were a snob. Your dad told you, you were too temperamental. Your boss told you, you were rude. Your roommate told you, you were too greedy.

All the weaknesses that show up and we get people to correct us about them, is God trying to correct our wrong attitudes.

These same wrong attitudes are what we carry into our marriages. These attitudes cause a lot of trouble. We expect our wives to cope with our negative attitudes, all in the name of being submissive and respectful. The wives should be submissive, but please don’t let us over-stretch ourselves.

Also, the wives complain about the husbands not loving them, but let’s say the truth. Is it easy to love a wife with negative attitudes? Let us make it easier for our spouses to submit to us and love us, as the case may be, and begin to correct any negative attitudes you notice in your life.

God corrects us because He does not want to leave us the same way we are. We have to yield to His corrections if we must live a better life.

For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. –Proverbs 3:12 (KJV)

And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? –Hebrews 12:5 -9 (KJV)

The Lord urges us to change our negative attitudes. Here are some bad attitudes that will not make our marriages work;

1. Lazy attitude

2. Unforgiving attitudes

3. Insincere attitudes

4. Selfish attitudes

5. Mean attitudes

6. Unpleasant attitudes

Work on these negative attitudes and the Lord will bless your marriage.

How To Treat People Right

How To Treat People Right

Reading Time: < 1 minute


Learning to treat people right is important. Do you like to be shoved away, kicked, punched, pinched, teased, mocked, bullied, and lied at? These are just some terrible things that can happen to you. 

Other children or even adults can do these wicked things to you just because they can or they think you deserve it. How would you feel? Really ask yourself this question.

On the other hand, you could be the one doing these same unfair acts to other children.

Maybe in collaboration with other children, you could be bullying a classmate who has bushy eyebrows. You could mock them with a name like “the bush”, “bushbrows”, “bushy” or any other name you think is cool.

Do you think they would like that? Really ask yourself this. 

You definitely won’t like to be on the receiving part and shouldn’t do that to another person. They also won’t like it. If you won’t like it, they most likely won’t like it too.

Jesus condemned treating people wrongly and told those around him to not do so. He was teaching them to value others with respect, love, and care.

“And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.” – Luke 6:31

He was saying that you should treat others the way you want to be treated. If you want to be treated well, treat people well. That’s the right thing to do.

May you receive the strength to treat people well. Amen.

Prayer:
Lord Jesus, I obey your command and will treat everyone well. Strengthen me for this task. Amen.

Action point:
You can start by apologizing to the people you have treated badly in the past. Then begin to treat other people well.

Declaration:
I learn to treat people well.
