God: wants our invitation to build our homes….
Titus 2:5 (KJV) “To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed”.
I looked at the content of this reading today very carefully and if I had to do a comparison to what is available in the media today in the way of marriage, loyalty and trust this can be said to be archaic. That is pretty sad state of affairs for the world and the church if our directive for matrimonial living is guided by what is available from what we feed our spirit.
What you put in is what you will get out and if our inner man is being fed with soap operas and reality television from dysfunctional families, guess what will be our fruit? It will be dysfunctional families in the body of Christ as well.
But the word is telling us something quite different from what is being demonstrated: discretion is the first effort we need to attain to as we cherish the family bond; give the happenings between you a chance by attempting to resolve issues between one another, leave out the best friends, in-laws and those who love to put to right.
Give the relationship a chance to be nurtured and flourish in purity as granted by Christ; it is His desire that relationships be sound and fruitful. Communication and respecting the words which came out of your mouth in respect to marital vows need to be at the forefront of our minds, but one additional and just as important aspect needs to be mindful of and that is respect for the word of God as the sanctity for marriage.
Let not the word of God be evil spoken of or demonized as demonstrated by your life living. It might be difficult at times, and especially when we have kids to take into consideration, but God honors His word and seeking His assistance in attaining what He wishes our lives to be like is something to spread upon our relationships. In everything seek God’s face and He will surely direct our paths.
