In the previous days on The Dirty Dozen Husbands And Wives Should Avoid, we have looked at the following:
1. Refusing to pray together as husbands and wives
2. Quarreling day in day out
3. Being moody most of the time
4. Disobeying your husband
5. Not Loving Your Wife
6. Cheating on each other
So, pick it up from here.
What other things should couple avoid in their home and as a family?
7. Comparison Traps
Don’t fall for this.
Don’t compare yourself to that other couple in the neighborhood.
Stop telling your spouse to be as nice as that other couple you met in the mall.
People are generally nice, until you start living with them.
Your spouse is the most precious person in your life right now, stop the comparison.
Appreciate what God has given you in a spouse and focus on it.
Stop admiring what will never be yours in this world or in the world to come.
What is the pint admiring another person’ spouse while you continue to disdain the one that God has given you.
You are violating the honour code right there.
Honour one another.
Love one another.
Appreciate yourselves to the very heavens.
Let’s dive into the scripture.
2 Corinthians 10:12 (KJV)
For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
We can see it right there.
It is just not wise.
Focus on each other and pray more together.
Be on the same page.
When you focus on each other, you will come to see the treasures that are within you!
I pray that God gives you more understanding.
May God bless your marriage.

I will not fall into comparison trap

Lord, lift up our heads.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Flew from all source of temptation
