In Marriage Devotionals, Marriage Matters

28 DAYS OF APPRECIATION – DAY 21

Action: Pay the Cost

Launchpad: There’s a price tag for everything. There’s no single thing that has ever been given or gotten without paying the price. Even whatever is ‘Free’, someone must have paid for it. There’s always a cost.

If you want to build a house, you will need to resource.
If you want to start a business, you will need capital.
If you want to excel, you will need to master the art, add skills to the knowledge acquired and rightfully apply it.

This is the same case with your marriage.
If you want to settle down brother, you must leave all the other ladies and choose one. Cleave to her and love her deeply.
If you want a blissful marriage, you must work for it. It doesn’t fall like manna from heaven.

If you want your kids to be live better than you in their future, you need to create that environment by taking them the right schools, developing character, chastity, charity and discipline while they are still young. This has a cost.

Marriage has a cost.
But are you willing to pay the price?
Are you willing to be branded ‘family guy’?
Are you ready to be called all kinds of names because you spend much time tilling your farm?
Are you ready to forsake all the other ladies and be with the one who matters in your life?

Are you willing to go the extra mile and raise your kids in a godly way?
Are you doing your best to secure a future for your family?
Are you taking care of your beautiful wife?

Are you ready to be her lifetime companion through thick and thin?
Are you ready to sacrifice for her and your children?

Are you ready to let go of toxic relationships that choke your marriage and progress?
Are you ready to put aside your ego and be the first to offer reconciliation?
Are you ready to pay the price?
If not, you are not ready for marriage!

Bible Verse:
Phil 3:8; Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.

Prayer:
Almighty God, thank you for your Son, who came and redeemed us back to you. He paid the price at the cross. Today I chose to give myself totally to the authority and headship you bestowed upon me for my family. To love sacrificially and give magnanimously.
To the Glory and honor of your name.
In Jesus name I pray.
Amen.
