|Choosing A Wife: 11th February 2018|
Our choice of a mate is an extremely important decision. Once a man chooses a woman to become his wife, she is his companion, the mother of their children, and the keeper of their home. Before he chooses his best man, he needs to give much thought into this serious matter of selecting a mate. It is vitally important that he select a godly woman as she will know Jesus’ teachings and she will be a committed Christian.
As God taught the Jews, He gave them commandments to be o..
|THE VIRTUOUS WOMAN – PART 1: 11th February 2018|
The depiction of the godly character that all ladies need to always try to attain is seen in the virtuous woman. Sadly, we live in a time in which the virtues possessed by this woman are often lacking in our society.
We read of her in Proverbs 31.
This worthy woman has been placed in a situation where all these wonderful characteristics are seen. Our Lord is so magnificent! He knew that in this way, our desire to obtain these virtues would ultimately be seen to be ..
|Communication: 11th February 2018|
“Please Talk to Me.” In our homes communication is a basic need. We
are so fortunate that we have communication. It is such a delight to
talk and listen!
Our complications in life are multiplied by the lack of communication. Many times the communication we use often causes disarray. This is done as bridges are destroyed t..
|Intimacy In Marriage: 11th February 2018|
How should couples develop intimacy in marriage?
Marriage should be the most intimate relationship anybody experiences in life. It should be more intimate than a friendship, a mother-daughter relationship, a father-son relationship, a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship, etc. But sadly, many couples often ..
|Financial Faithfulness In Marriage: 11th February 2018|
How can couples practice financial faithfulness in marriage? Many Christian couples give their tithe and offering to God but act like the rest is theirs. However, this is an incorrect use of finances. Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” Crucial to financial faithfulness is recognizing that God is the owner, and we are simply stewards ..
|Submissive Wives—Really? (Colossians 3:18): 11th February 2018|
I know of no verse in the Bible that is as concise and obvious in its meaning and yet so controversial and difficult to apply practically as Colossians 3:18. On the surface, it’s pretty simple:
Wives must submit to their husbands as is fitting in the Lord.
If there are no questions, we can all go home now! But the obvious simplicity becomes incredibly complex as you begin t..
|Communication In Marriage: 11th February 2018|
At the core of every healthy marriage is the ability of a couple to successfully communicate with one another. Communication can be difficult because each individual may have a different background, experiences, and sometimes even culture, which all affect communication. In addition, 60 to 90% of all communication consists of body language, eye contact, facial expressions, and tone rather than words. Communication is a skill that must be learned and practiced in ..
|Conflict Resolution In Marriage: 11th February 2018|
Conflict is, essentially, part of human nature. After Adam sinned in the Garden, conflict ensued. When God asked him if he had eaten of the forbidden tree, he did not simply say, “Yes.” He said, “The woman you gave me, gave me the fruit and I did eat.” He indirectly blamed God and directly blamed the woman. The woman then blamed ..
|6 Simple Steps Happy Couples Take to Resolve Conflict: 11th February 2018|
As soon as the snarky comment came out of my mouth, I knew I shouldn’t have said it. The look on my husband’s face revealed a mixture of hurt and surprise, and I immediately tried to retract my words.
However, the damage was already done. Weeks of worry over a financial situation had mounted with little conversation about the subject. We’d exchanged a few words before I headed out the door for an appointment, and I thought we had..
|Married Or Not. Just Read This..: 11th February 2018|
|“When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand
and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly.
Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.|
Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?
I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks an..
