QUOTE OF THE DAY: “IN RELATIONSHIPS, IT IS EITHER YOU COMMUNICATE OR YOU DISINTEGRATE”
Memory Verse: “Come now, let us reason together, “says the Lord.”Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18.
Marriage must be successful, partners in a marriage relationship must be happy with each other because the survival of any nation is dependent on the happiness of the homes. Families are the smallest unit of the nation. No nation can survive where the families disintegrate.
No man or woman will be effective at work if his/her home is going through turbulence. If you are not happy at home, you cannot be happy at work. Unfortunately, most marriages are not happy, most couples are merely tolerating themselves and in many cases, despite that they are living under the same roof, their bedrooms are separated and their hearts are miles apart. Not a few are secretly cursing the day they met and the day they got married. The first casualty in any home where there is problem is communication. Once it breaks down, divorce is imminent. Couples may not agree on everything, they may argue and debate several issues, but as long as they still communicate, there is hope.

It is also applicable to other types of relationships. Communication also has different levels; there is the causal level when we merely greet each other. You do not need to know my name or who I am to greet me. There is also the talking level, where the people involved know themselves well. These set of people can be neigbhours at home or colleagues at work. The feeling level is when the two people have concern for each other.
This is the level of parents to children, friends to friends and also those in love. There is the trust level. This is the kind of communication that is expected in marriages. God’s original standard for marriage is that couples should be naked before each other and not be ashamed or afraid. It is the level of true love that confers freedom on both of them: freedom to make mistake and still be accepted, to say what is in one’s mind without being misunderstood or bullied. Today is full of pleasant surprises for you.
I see bright light on your endeavour. You are lifted!
