This One Thing Will Always Birth Crises In Marriage
I have counseled hundreds of couples in the last twenty-two years. Marriage has always been and will always work. There are things you do and it is guaranteed that the marriage will work. There are things you ignore and it is sure that crises will emanate.
There is one sure thing if undone, will always birth crisis every time. This has to do with accountability.
Ever met anyone who does not want to be accountable and doesn’t want to talk to mentors? At the root of this is Pride! This is accentuated in the scriptures.
Let’s take a look at the scriptures
Wisdom opens your heart to receive wise counsel, but pride closes your ears to advice and gives birth to only quarrels and strife.
Pro 13:10 (TPT)
How do you know a wise couple? They are open to wise counsel. You see, there are issues that will come up in marriage that will be beyond you. God forbid that you have nobody to talk to!
Many a couple’s heart are closed to counsel and this is not good because they are only operating by what they know and the reality is that what they know is limited. Limited by their age and experiences.
It is wisdom then, to open yourselves to counsel because God will surround you with at least one person who has wisdom to help in whatever imbroglio you might have found yourselves.
That scripture says pride closes the ears to advice and shockingly, pride also gives birth to quarrels and strife.
Is your marriage riddled with strife and quarrels? Then find out if you have not made statements like “You must not discuss me with a third party!”
Yes, you must not discuss your issues all over the place, but you should have at least one person who serves as mentor or pastor you should talk to. And this person shouldn’t be either of your parents in any way. They will always be biased.
Have a great day!
