Does this sound like a threat? I think not so. It’s just a warning. An alarm bell to bring you at alert to what is necessary.
Some days ago, I went out and I made some observations. Overtime, I’ve heard ladies (I hear mostly ladies, I don’t l know if men do the same. Probably I’ve not just heard them) say their man must have this and that (not qualities now, but possessions).
They’ve so much placed priority on the possessions much more than the core qualities that aids a marriage. I wrote a post on qualities sometimes last year, you can check it out here.
The material things they focus on are cars, a house of his own (he must have built a house, not rented apartment), a certain figure in his account, and what have you. While the possessions in themselves are not bad; at least everyone wants the sense of financial security and all, if that’s what is used as your determinant for marriage, then be ready for whatever you eyes see.There are things your spouse may not have and the fact is you will not die. In fact, the coming of both of you can produce much more than one person alone can produce. Click To Tweet
There are things your spouse may not have and the fact is you will not die. In fact, the coming of both of you can produce much more than one person alone can produce. However, there’s something, nay, Someone that if your spouse doesn’t have, you’ll ‘die’; spiritually, emotionally, psychologically, and in some cases, physically. If your spouse doesn’t have God (I’m not talking about empty religious profession), but has every other thing, sorry.
Seek God first in the life of your partner, and all other things will be added. While the material possessions are good and necessary, the most important is that s/he has Christ at the centre of their lives.
Jesus at the center makes the home godly and happy.
