 Sermom about Marriage: Stronger Ties 

Some foolishly enter (Eccl. 5:2-5)

Mean it, don’t just “go through the motions” (Matt. 5:37; Jas. 5:12)

Marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman. It's a commitment that binds two people together for life. In most cases, a marriage is formed to help individuals grow and to bring joy into their lives. However, some people don't understand that marriage duties and responsibilities are not the same thing. When one or both spouses do not understand what they're signing up for, issues arise in the relationship.

Intended to be permanent (Mk. 10:1-9; Rom. 7:2-3)

When both spouses are responsible for maintaining and taking care of their family, they should be respectful. In other words, both should carry responsibilities within their marriage.

1. Communication

No one like to be “in the dark”

Communication that is beneficial to us and pleasing to God is the kind that edifies (Eph. 4:29)

The principles of the spousal relationship requires conversation AND understanding in communi-cation (Eph. 5:22, 25, 28-29)

When they communication together to make each day more manageable, both should be expected to contribute to the same goals.

2. Pulling My Own Weight

Too many times frustration enters into a marriage when one partner does not pull his/her own weight

There is little sympathy for the man who will not earn a living or help in the rearing his offspring

There is just as much sympathy for a wife who does not work outside of the home and the home is a dump

Apart from working on family dynamics, each spouse should focus on becoming a good father and mother to his or her children. A good parent provides love and care to his or her children daily. Plus, they make sure their children a dignified life

 Although situations vary, it's important that both fathers take responsibility for raising their families well.

When one person in a relationship has to shoulder too much weight, it can be difficult to have a happy relationship. Most relationships start off well- but life happens and thins go wrong.

3. Selfishness

There is often a complaint issued by either one or both partners. It goes like this, “I’m not happy anymore.” Often a confession of selfishness

Things change as time goes on

Marriage is for the mature (see Mk. 10:7). It is for a “man and a woman”

Over time, relationships tend to drift towards each person taking on more responsibilities in them- selves. However, this drift is difficult to acknowledge since it often feels like both people are being mistreated by the other person. It's difficult to balance responsibilities when one person has to shoulder too much weight; thus, making it difficult for them to equall themselves in that role.

Stronger Family Ties - Marriage

Biblical Marital Advice: Husbands are to love as Christ loved

Christ loved the church (His bride) so much that He was willing to die for it. As husbands, we should all be willing to do the same for our wives

With such sacrificial love being shown to them, what woman would not be willing to show their love in return

Subjection will not be a “have to” but a “want to”

Ephesians 5:22-31

22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. 24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything.

Both spouses should focus on balancing their duties within marriage so they can live happily together as sons. Since both contribute towards building their families, they should be treated respectfull when it comes duties and responsibilities. In addition, a good father knows he should put his children first when raising his family- which makes him willing to sacrifice some time with his family for the sake of his duties as a mother and father.
