Success in Marriage
Success in Marriage
By Wayne McDonald

Matthew 19:5-6 “For this reason shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be united firmly (jointed inseparably) to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefor God has jointed together, let no man put asunder (separate)”.

Marriage is under great attack these days. It takes a true commitment to stay married. After the honeymoon is over you will quickly discover that is what marriage is all about “commitment”. Marriage is a wonderful union it is designed by God. However you are taking two separate lives from totally different backgrounds and putting them together.

Most of us have not taken a coarse in success in marriage before we got married; it was all trial and era. Most of us did not learn the skills of how to communicate affectivity in marriage. Marriage takes one hundred percent from both people to make it work properly. Here is a truth that will help you.

Become a servant to the other person. Wake up with the attitude how can I be a blessing to my husband or wife to day. Jesus said that the greatest person is the one that serves. Do you want to be great and have a great marriage start serving your spouse?

You might not see any good fruit at first but keep doing it after a wile you will see a difference. Live to give! Surprise your spouse today with a gift or a phone call and tell them I was just thinking about you and wanted to do something special for you.

Don’t expect anything in return just do it because you love that person and you want to serve them and be a blessing to them.

”Prayer”, Lord show me how I can bless my spouse today and serve them and make their life easier!
