04 December 2023: VITAL PREPARATIONS BEFORE MARRIAGE (3) – Amos 3:3

The statement, “When you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail” is also true for the marriage institution. Today, I want to show you some additional preparations for marriage you must go through.

7. ACCEPT EACH OTHER’S PARENTS AND FAMILIES: The brother must protect the sister from in-laws’ influence and the sister must learn to relate very well with the in-laws. Responsibilities to each other’s family must be properly discussed before marriage. As much as possible, don’t encourage family members to live with you in the early years of your marriage. This sometimes affects your intimacy, and you may end up not knowing each other very well.

8. HARMONISE YOUR FRIENDS: Let the friends that you keep in marriage be the ones that will help your home and not the ones that will pull you apart.

9. MAKE FINANCIAL PLANS TOGETHER: Plan wisely for your wedding and avoid going into debt. Save for the future and prioritise your spending. You don’t need a society wedding if you can’t finance one successfully. Don’t spend carelessly on the wedding ceremony without having a family car, basic house items, or even a landed property.

A wedding is a one-day event; marriage is for a lifetime.

10. PREPARE TO BE UNDER THE SAME MENTOR, PASTOR, AND SPIRITUAL COVERING: A man who has no spiritual father is an endangered man; a lady should run from such. Be under the same sound, called man of God whom both of you will submit to in your marriage. Fathers take us farther in the divine programme.

PRAYER: Lord, I pray for the Spirit of wisdom and understanding to handle every preparation I must go through for my God-ordained marriage, in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Daniel 11:36-12:13; 1 John 4:1-21; Psalm 123:1-4; Proverbs 29:2-4
