We have been working alot in our garden getting it tilled and ready to plant and it made me think of how our marriage is alot like a garden.
You have to get the grass and weeds out of the soil because if not it will be a battle when the crop comes, just like in your marriage you have to eliminate all the friends who are just there to try and see your marriage fail, the negative attitudes and selfishness that will slowly destroy what God created. Galatians 7-9 says (Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.) so we must be cautious as to what we sow in our garden of marriage.
Sowing good seeds in your home such as:
- the beatitudes found in Matthew 5:3-11,
- the fruit of the spirit which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance (Galatians 5:22-23),
- praying together for God's will in your marriage and home,
- Doing your duty as the wife of your home without being told.
What seeds will you start sowing in your marriage this week that will make your marriage a better harvest then if left the way it is right now? Do you need someone to help you pray about a situation in your life if so leave a short prayer request and I and the Love and Marriage community will be praying with you.
I hope you all have a great Tuesday!!!! May God be with all of you!
