BUILDING UP ONE ANOTHER:
The word build is another word for nurture. When you build, you are making an edifice, structure; you are constructing something visible that will catch attention and easily noticeable.
Do you know that your mate is suppose to be the most important person in your life after God?. If you have your children, your parents or friends in your spouses place of honor then you are asking for problems. You are crashing your marriage.
You cannot put the cart before the horse its not going to work. I think one of the problems of Christian Marriages is putting the cart before the horse. We make preferential treatment to our friends etc at the expense of our home.
We need to choose everyday to love our spouse with an undying love, find ways to compliments them, praise them for things they do, honor and respect them.
In building up one another we need quality time together. Be sure to touch them, hold them, hug them, kiss them.
We need to spend quality time in prayers too.
Let the line of communication be opened. Create time to talk, chat, discuss and be free to ask questions.
If you find your mate is better at something then you are do not try to tear them down praise them for their abilities and gifts. Work to help them achieve greatness. If you find them overwhelmed seek to find ways to help lift the burden.
In building up your spouse, you make room for peace to reign in your marriage. You are making room for greater things in your home.
Start out today to build up and not tear down.
