Sometime ago, while on my way to school, the car broke down. As the driver was trying to fix it, there was another car approaching on the other side of the road that suddenly caught fire.
Interestingly the fire started from underneath the car. Sadly, the car belonged to a man who had his wife and baby in the car.
Now the driver of the car I was in, rushed down to the other side of the road, carrying a fire extinguisher and hoping to help quench the fire with it.
Unfortunately, he could not use the appliance in his hand and nobody could either!
What am I bringing out from this story?
Sometimes having the hips, lips and tips in place is not enough. Have you ever wondered why some really beautiful sisters are baeless? Or some seemingly good guys are booless?
It is more than the container. The content will matter more at the end of the day.
That driver had the fire extinguisher quite alright, but he could not use it so it was as good as useless!
In time of crisis, when you need someone to intercede for you, will your spouse be able?
When you are down and you need encouragement, do you have the inner strength and stamina for it?
Can you both pull forces together to create a permanent explosive effect in the kingdom of darkness?
OK let’s even say its not about you. The driver had issues with his own car too but what he had could have addressed the situation of somebody else if only he knew how to use it!
To start with, if your relationship/marriage is all about you then you have failed.
There is more to you, your life and definitely your relationship.
Don’t let God be sorry over you.
Save yourself the agony of being sorry over something you could have handled.
Don’t just be beauty with no brain.
Don’t just be a money bag or hustler with no content.
Let virtue flow out of you.
John 7:38 (NIV) Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”
Step up your game.
Be informed, be aware, be alert and be sensitive.
Another point to note in that story is that the foundation matters. The fire started from underneath the car. If the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Don’t keep throwing things under the carpet.
Some people are very good at avoiding responsibilities.
Address that issue now.
Face the challenge and pass that stage once and for all.
Eat the shoulder; take responsibility.
Look out for warning signs before it eventually exposes you.
Whatever area it is, financially, physically, socially or intellectually, deal with it! Do not be caught unawares.
Good things are written about you but your cooperation is needed at the end of the day.
May God help us.
