Increasing Your Value on Marriage
"Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge" Hebrews 13:4.
A marriage you don't value, will not add value to your life. Happy and successful marriage does not happen by chance. couples who place value on their marriage work hard together to make their dream come true. If you are going to have a happy and successful marriage, you need to value your marriage as a precious asset in your life. Because the level of value you place on your marriage will determine the level of labour you will invest in it. First let me say this, marriage is not a necessary evil. It is not a curse. Marriage is not a bad thing. It is not for better for worst. In this post, I will show you what God said about marriage so that you can increase your value and commitment on your marriage and family. Why should you place value on your marriage?
1. Marriage is an honourable institution- Heb 13 :4
What makes marriage so unique is that it is an honourable institution founded by God Himself. Therefore, if you claim to respect God but disrespect the institution of Marriage which God founded in the garden of Eden, then your respect for God is fake. If you have value for God, you will have value for marriage. The way you see and treat marriage is the way you see and treat the Founder of Marriage. God places much premium on Marriage and He expects us to do the same. Marriage is an honourable thing in the sight of God, especially when it is built on the foundation and principles of God's word and not on the World's system of belief. Even in our society, people place some level of respect and trust in you when you are married. There are certain position of authority and responsibilities you cannot attain in the government and other organizations unless you are married. You may not know how valuable your marriage is until you lose it. Keep your marriage very close to your heart, because that's where your honour is in many ways.
2. Marriage is a good thing - Proverbs 18:22
Marriage is a good thing. It is a blessing and not a curse. It is plus and not a minus. There are many good things that marriage provides. God founded the marriage Union to give the man and the woman an opportunity to meet each other's needs. There are certain needs that a man has which he cannot meet by himself. God put the woman in the marriage to meet such needs and vice versa. The good thing about marriage is that marriage gives the husband and his wife the opportunity to help each other fulfill their destiny in God. It gives the couple the opportunity to have a companion and to enhance procreation. Marriage is a good thing because there is a level of favour that comes from God upon you when you are married. God knows that marriage carries some level of responsibilities, hence He gives some kind of favour to the married people to enable them meet up the financial needs of the marriage. Believe it or not, there is some kind of breakthrough, open door, success and and prosperity you may not encounter until you are married. Haven't you seen some people who began to see setbacks and badluck in their business and finances the moment they began to treat their marriage and spouse in a disgusting manner. Your Marriage is one of the best things that happened to you and your spouse is one of the best gifts that God gave to you. Let this fact dominate your consciousness and your marriage will take a beautiful shape.
3. Marriage is for the better only- Eccl 4:9-12
Marriage is for better only. It is not for better for worst. If you can't picture a hitch free and colourful future in marriage, you can't feature in it. Because what you see, is what you get. Marriage is here to make your life better. That should boost your value and confidence in marriage. If two are better than one, then being married is better than being single. To be married is to get better. Marriage is an advantage, not a disadvantage. It doesn't matter if your parents' marriage wasn't so blissful. It doesn't matter if all your friends and neighbours have some nasty stories to tell about their marriage. There is a better future for you in marriage. See it, believe it, work to achieve it and you will have it. Marriage without tears is a reality and you too can experience it. But your value on Marriage matters. Was this post helpful?
