THE SERVANT-LEADER

  “He riseth up from supper, and laid aside his garments and took a towel, and girded Himself. After He poured the water into a basin, He began to wash the disciples feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded.” (John 13: 4&5). I think we have a common knowledge and...

THE MODEL MARRIAGE: CHRIST AND THE CHURCH

We see beautiful pictures of couples together and we go ‘couple goals,’ ‘I go love o,’ ‘this people just make marriage interesting,’ and all the other stuff we say to show that we actually appreciate the couple and if possible would want to pattern our marriage after theirs because of the love and affection they...

CAN I PRAY FOR YOU?

Hey! I was thinking some days ago and I just felt I should pray with you and for you with some prayer points I tell my Father concerning my home and my marriage. We both know that marriage is no child’s play, and as much as we want to look at it from the physical...

PRAYING FOR YOUR SPOUSE

One of the best gifts you can give your spouse either before meeting them or even in the marriage is the gift of PRAYER. Prayer can never be too much in the life of a man, and no matter how much you give it, your spouse can never be tired, rather, they will soar on...

WHO TAKES PRIORITY?

As between your spouse and your kids, who takes priority? Between your immediate family (wife and children) and your extended family (parents and siblings), who takes priority? Between your work and your wife, who takes priority? If you’re to choose between your familiar friends and the wife/husband of your youth, who are you going to...

PREPARING FOR YOUR MARRIAGE

Time and time again, I often here that the best time to prepare for anything you want to do in life is not the time you want to do it, but a long time before. Marriage is not an exception in this, as it is a fundamental aspect of our existence. Often times, singles are...

MANAGING IN-LAW RELATIONSHIPS

Most of the problems pertaining to in-law issues start from the mind as a result of ingrained perceptions that the society has in general. It’s almost as though the mention of the word ‘in-law’ means something negative and it’s because people who have this perception ignorantly complicate matters for themselves.
