AFTER GETTING MARRIED EYES CLOSED

The couple must decide how they are going to live, defining tasks, etc. – Matthew 7:24,25

Once married, they must close their eyes to their faults and flaws, taking responsibility. Every action has consequences.

As a new family, they must establish priorities / hierarchies as quickly as possible:

1st-God;

2nd-Husband;

3rd-Wife.

Parents and other family members must not interfere in the marriage.

ADAPTATION – A NEW LIFE

Without adaptation, no one will win. There has to be compromise on both sides.

Married life is not like single life. You stop being just one person and become two people with the same purpose. Like a baby, a marriage will also grow.

CHARACTER – PERSONALITY

The couple must be careful with their words – Proverbs 18:21

They should accept each other as they are and avoid the silent treatment, outbursts of anger, clashes of cultures.

Only God is able to meet all needs and understand the person as they are – Philippians 4:19

CONFLICTS – CONFRONTATION OF THE “ME”

All marriages and families go through this. It happens and it is part of adaptation.

It is necessary to:

-resolve the conflict (Ephesians 4:26)

-forgive and forget (Matthew 18:21,22)

MONEY

God must come first Proverbs 3:9,10.

It requires time to adapt, a financial map and defining who is going to pay for what – food, electricity, water, etc.

YOUR TRUE VALUE

Your value is not in being a husband or wife or having children.

Your true value lies in being a child of God.

THE SPIRITUAL LIFE

Mark 4:19

It is very easy to become busy with family life and/or children.

We need to guard our hearts and continue to have fellowship with God, attend church and serve God.

The enemy wants to try to get into your family, occupying your life and changing your priorities.
