The Role of Gifts in Marriage

The Role of Gifts in Marriage

Reading Time: < 1 minute

COUPLES –

Gifts can come with good intentions, and they can also be trouble in disguise depending from where they are coming from.

The rule of thumb is to ensure your spouse know about gifts you give away and those you receive. That places you in a safe zone.

I don’t think husbands should give out gifts or financial favors to ladies, maybe in church or at work without the knowledge of the wife.

The wife should be in the know to avoid unnecessary traps.

Married women should be careful in taking gifts from men as well.

The kind of gift you will take and you wouldn’t inform your husband is not worth it. Such things can get you trapped faster than you think.

Gifts have a way of making a way, and sometimes that way may be a way leading to hell.

Let’s be disciplined, focused and matured in this area.

May God bless your marriage.

May God help us all.

Ten Things You Should Not Do For Your Lover

Ten Things You Should Not Do For Your Lover

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Most times, we need to be reminded not just what to do, but what not to do in a relationship that will lead to marriage. God is clear in His word regarding the Don’ts. It is your ability to stay within the parameters of God’s word that will guarantee a great relationship that will lead to a wedding. Here are those things you need to pay attention to.

1. Do not stop praying for each other
Hear this again and again, in addition to working on your relationship, you are going to need a lot of prayers. You are going to need that spiritual energy to sustain the relationship. The devil doesn’t want you to get married! He is going to do everything possible to throw tantrums and bring confusion into the relationship. When you pray constantly, you will not enter into his temptation and traps!

2. Do not ignore each other
Stay in touch through calls and chats. If there is someone not to ignore, it’s your loved one! Ignoring each other will open the door for the devil to feed your souls with assumptions; and assumptions are the lowest forms of knowledge.

3. Do not stop buying gifts for each other.
Gifts should not be one sided. There is nowhere in the scripture where it says it is the destiny of guys to buy gifts while the ladies collect. It should be mutual. You will always be creative with giving gifts to the one you really love.

4. Do not stop sharing spiritual truths.
Talk to each other from time to time about your dealings with God. Whatever God is sharing with you in your personal closet, share the same with your spouse. This will enable you to be on the same page. In the coming days when you forget, your spouse is the one that will remind you.

5. Do not discourage each other
Don’t wear each other out with criticism and discouraging words. Do not disparage each other. Rather, invest in each other’s esteem and build yourselves up in God. Say good words and prophesy unto yourselves! It works!

I will stop here today and continue tomorrow.

Have a blessed day!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I know the things to do to make my lover feel loved

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, teach me the things I need to know.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
1 Cor 13:4 (AMP) Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Go through the devotional again and make plans.

Love Languages In Marriage – Part 2

Love Languages In Marriage – Part 2

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Good morning everybody, we are continuing our topic of love language in marriage. Couples should go all out to speak the language of their spouse unreservedly since our aim in marriage is to place our spouse.

It will be good to always look for creative ways to speak the love language our spouse understands. Marriage is a place where we serve each other. We don’t think of ourselves first. We allow and trust God through our spouse to take care of us

That is why it becomes imperative for us to learn and understand our spouse love language.

3.  Words of Affirmation

Here, words mean a big deal to your spouse. In speaking his/her love language, you want to be careful of what is said, how it is said, when it is said, your body language, your tone, pitch and everything surrounding the words you say.

Here, it means a lot to your spouse when you give words of encouragement. Words that will uplift him/her. You might not be able to provide all the money in this world but your reassuring words makes them feel loved.

Your thoughtful words keeps him/her going. In times of stress, needs, bills to pay, weakness etc, your words are like magic.

Speaking negative, derogative, harsh and hard words or sermonizing or nagging your spouse could be counterproductive.

Please watch for those other than your spouse that speak gently, softly and tenderly to you. Avoid them, it could be a danger spit for the devil to exploit. An emotional affair could develop if you are not

discerning and careful.

Never look forward to anyone’s company or enjoy any ones company other than your spouse.

4. Quality time

If the love language of your spouse is quality time, then love mean time. Not only quantity but quality of time.

Your spouse will appreciate being present with him/her. Your presence and not just present matters to them.

Create memories. Go out for outings together, dinners, vacations, go to seminars together and just spend time together. However, what you spend your time on also matters.

Quality time means time of getting to know your spouse better, listening them talk, being sensitive to them, trying to understand them and knowing how to react and respond.

The lord will help is all. If could be challenging since usually opposite temperament will always attract and some time our love languages are different or we want our love language expressed in a different way from that of our spouse.

Our male female differences, the background we grew up in and other factors are responsible for this.

As a matter of rule, watch out for people of the opposite sex you spend too much time with.

5. Gifts

Your spouse feels love is not complete until it is expressed in buying of gifts. Something must be given to show you care. It has to cost you. More often than not, the thoughtfulness behind the given will mean more to your spouse. So its nor about the gift, but you taking the pains of know the appropriate gift to buy at what time or occasion. Example you wife just deliver a baby, and you got her a a sexy gown. She probably can’t even wear it because of breast feeding.

Find out our favorite color, scent, her size, her preference, her need. What is the point buying your wife high heels when she is pregnant or buying your husband an expensive office suitcase when he needs a belt and doesn’t go to office but works from home.

In all these love language, we all need the help of the holy spirit to lead and guide us. Lest our good works become evil spoken of. We get offended and not appreciated because it didn’t meet our deepest desire.

The holy spirit is our helper, when we call on him he will help us even in performing our duties of speaking our spouse’s love language.

May God grant us understanding.

God bless our marriage.
