Couples' Devotional

The Dirty Dozen Husbands And Wives Should Avoid


1. Refusing to pray together as husbands and wives

Believe me, this is not a nice idea. Learn to pray together. Pray daily. Stop throwing tantrums at each other, learn to pray together. As the saying goes, the couple that pray together, stay together.

Ask yourself, why have we not been praying together?

Why can’t we start now?

2. Quarreling day in day out

Hey, is that the purpose why you got married? To be quarreling all the time? So when do you get to enjoy each other.

Ask yourself, what exactly is the major cause of these quarrels?

What have the constant quarrels added to the family?

How has it impacted on the emotions of the children?

3. Being moody most of the time

Do you know the Bible advises you to be happy and to rejoice always as a couple?

Proverbs 5:18 (KJV) 
Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.

See Message Translation:

Proverbs 5:18 (MSG) 
Bless your fresh-flowing fountain! Enjoy the wife you married as a young man!

Ask yourself, why am I moody all the time?

Why am I unhappy in my own matrimonial home?

4. Disobeying your husband


Some wives do this for several reasons.

It is anti-productive. Your husband is your head. That is never going to change. And you are to submit.

It doesn’t mean you don’t have a say, it just means you honour him by allowing him to have the final say.

Being rebellious to your husband, either directly or in a subtle way will hinder your prayers and tamper with the protective edge on you. It will be as though the powers of evil are triumphing over righteousness. There is no point.

Ask yourself as a wife, why do I find it difficult to honour my husband with obedience?

Could there be a seed of rebellion lurking somewhere?

Ask yourself as a husband, am I making it difficult for my wife to honour me?

Have I taken very wrong decisions in time past that landed the whole family in problems, for example, debts, financial mess etc?

Well, go over these and meditate.

Address the questions.

Try and get to the root of issues.
