Ngee says… A bull charges without thinking of anything that comes its way, especially if it comes in red! Many couples are like the bull charging over every single conversation or action by their spouse. So today we want to remind you ‘don’t be bull headed’, for the result might not be what you intended.
Last week blog talked about the nation being at the verge of war. Today we are talking about the war brewing in homes and that we are being too bull headed to see or address the situation.
Most men used to pride themselves in having different women in their lives, without taking into consideration the destructive pattern they had set for their family. Different women simply means someone’s daughter, who could also be your daughter/son’s friend, it could even be your mother in-law or someone’s wife. So, though you are having fun, you are creating a pattern that usually comes back to bite when we least expect it.
Now the tables are turning, we have the women cheating almost more than the men. The men are crying foul! But where did it all begin?
We cannot afford to be bull headed as conflicts in marriage require we listen to our spouse and think constructively together to proffer possible solutions to the problems. Also we have to constantly reevaluate the long term consequences of our actions so that we can learn, improve and become.
A scripture comes to mind; “seed time and harvest time never ceases (Genesis 8:22)“. This is true in all spheres of life, including marriage.
Some men have sown a seed of immorality and many including the innocent are reaping the harvest of this immorality.
So this weekend we are calling on couples, both men and women to look at the mirror and see things as they truly are. Then make a decision to create a better tomorrow for yourself and children by taking a stand to become the example of what you want for them. Remember, a better marriage begins with creating a safe place for both of you to speak your minds.
Marriage is endangered because of our selfishness! Stop! Preserve your home! Remember the society stands only when the family unit is built. …family DNA of society.
