03 December 2023: VITAL PREPARATIONS BEFORE MARRIAGE (2) – Proverbs 15:1

Today, we will continue our study on the essential preparations you must go through before marriage.

4. LEARN HOW TO USE WORDS: Words have the power to build up or pull down. One wisdom that both parties preparing for marriage should learn is how to use words to diffuse tension in the home. Use pet names for each other. Avoid expressing your anger by using derogatory words. Crack jokes and build intimacy with words.

Take advantage of the Word of God to pray together.

Never report your husband around to family members and neighbours as a wife; rather, discuss every challenge you may be facing with your pastor.

5. HAVE RESPECT FOR YOUR BODY: In courtship, display honour and respect for each other and this will continue in marriage. As a single lady, respect your body. Don’t flaunt your cleavage and curves. Be well covered! You don’t have to appear sexual to be attractive. Don’t dress to kill; dress for respect. Dress in such a way that your appearance commands respect. Don’t dress to draw lust from men or portray yourself as a loose lady. A man must also learn to respect the body of his fiancée. If you don’t respect each other in courtship, you will destroy the trust and confidence you are supposed to build in that period of your life.

6. PREPARE TO HARMONISE YOUR PHILOSOPHIES AND IDEAS: The courtship period is to have the same mind on critical matters. Listen to messages together and attend spiritual meetings and conferences together. Discuss issues that relate to work, location, church, and families. Don’t become strangers to each other after marriage.

PRAYER: Lord, I pray for the right attitude, discipline, and heart needed for a destiny marriage, in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Daniel 11:2-35; 1 John 3:7-24; Psalm 122:1-9; Proverbs 29:1
