WISDOM FOR LIVING
As the saying goes, PRIDE GOES BEFORE A FALL.
The consequences of pride in a marriage or relationship could be irreversible. If someone tells you that he/she has a perfect marriage, just know right away that he/she is a great liar.
Couples fight and fight badly for that matter, though it is not expected of a true Bible-believing Christian to stay fighting or disagreeing; but it’s the ability to revise ones stand, communicate with respect, and be honest with each other, that determines the survival of any relationship.
If you remove pride and arrogance in your marital relationship, the marriage is already 90% promising, stable, and peaceful. And can thus, stand the test of time.
Invest in your marriage through giving, talking and compromising here and there. Your business as a stakeholder should be what to do to make your home peaceful and stable for you, your spouse, and your children’s enjoyment.
Stop running to 3rd parties who equally have their own challenges they are probably hiding and managing. You may end up getting nothing positive or helpful from such friends, family members, church/mosque members, and colleagues to whom you are exposing or trading what should be the solved within the confines of your home.
A broken home is like war. No party goes uninjured. Each party goes with an injury they nurse for the rest of their lives. That is the reality. Whichever party claims unaffected/uninjured is a chronic liar, chronic pretender, and an unrepentant soul, l mean he/she is stone-hearted.
Such a person has no idea of what a good home should be. He/she is ignorant of the positive impact of the unbroken relationship on the home itself, the community, the church/mosque congregation, and the society at large. No amount of success in life could compensate for failure at home.
Ensure that your home is not scattered. Repair it now before it is too late. If your home is experiencing separation now, ensure that you shed your pride and compromise to arrest it from drifting to a broken home.
Stop narrating your home affairs around to seek sympathy. Most people you have taken your story to, and are supporting you, are in their own homes, keeping their homes intact, sympathising with you, while you are already out of your own home. Pride in the home can break it. Be humble to resolve your differences.
AVOID BROKEN HOME AT ALL COST AS YOU BUILD YOUR FAMILY…
