HABITS OF LASTING MARRIAGE AND RELATIONSHIPS
Song of Songs 2:15-17
[15] Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
[16] My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.
[17] Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.
There are many great habits you must develop if you want your relationship and family to be strong and lasting,I will discus four of them here.
1) ABSOLUTE TRUST
Proverbs 31:11 KJV
[11] The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
Trust is a must if relationship must stand,it is trust that builds love,it is love that builds relationships and marriages. Without TRUST,relationship is LOST forever
2) AUTHENTIC LOVE
c
— Authentic love is a giving love,romantic love is a demanding love
John 3:16 KJV
[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
— Authentic love is action love,Romantic love is selfish
Song of Songs 2:4
[4] He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
3) TOTAL COMMITMENT
Ruth 1:16-18 KJV
[16] And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: [17] Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me. [18] When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her.
4) EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
Must be truthful,open,respectful,positive and continuos
MUST NOT BE NEGATIVE
Ephesians 4:29 KJV
[29] Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
