Marriage is a journey; wedding is an event.

Hits: 615
Life gives us both good and bad times. When one is prepared for a journey, things go well but if not prepared things fall apart. Through your marriage make God proud and serve as a role model to others coming after you. There are many marriages out there, but not all of them are glorious. An ordinary marriage is cheap and not exciting.

marriage is a journey

Marriage is a journey; wedding is an event.

Life gives us both good and bad times. When one is prepared for a journey, things go well but if not prepared things fall apart. Through your marriage make God proud and serve as a role model to others coming after you. There are many marriages out there, but not all of them are glorious. An ordinary marriage is cheap and not exciting.

 

Dangers to marriage based on the 4 Horses of the apocalypse

These horses had an aim to destroy a large portion of the population. Many marriages have been destroyed because of the following:

1. White horse: Deception
White horse looks innocent but is not. When you are not an open book to each other. Intimacy: into me see- there's nothing in me which you don't know.

2. Red horse (War): Tension

  • Your wife isn't a punching bag, she's your friend.
  • Tension brings friction and friction leads to loss of energy.
  • Talk, express yourself, and speak the truth in love.

3.  Pale horse (Poverty): Indifference(lack of love)

  • Indifference is a poison which kills marriage (i.e man might bury themselves in work & sports and women in shopping, entertainment etc)
  •  Serious conversation needs to continue between the two of you.

4. Dark horse (Death): Coldness
Deception > Tension > Indifference > Coldness
When there's coldness a vacuum is created and this void needs to be filled. Other ladies, men, porn etc might end up filling the void.

 
How to build a great marriage

Hebrews 13:4

  • Be honourable: you know an honourable man by looking at his wife. She needs to reflect being taken care of.
  • Keep the marriage bed pure.
  • keep yourself for each.
