  • Mike C Opara on Ecclesiastes 9:9
    This life is full of ups and downs, happy moments as well as sorrowful times. No one is immune to the stress and troubles of life. However, there is one place one can find succour, comfort and solace - in the home or family, with a loved and loving spouse (and children/siblings). What a tremendous blessing it is to have a happy home! Little wonder then that devil fights marriages leading to countless quarrels, seperations, divorces and broken homes. "Marriage is a unique relationship established by God to fulfill His plan and purpose on earth through man. The marriage institution is established to better the lives of both spouses. The benefits of marriage are best realized when both spouses are committed to it. A breach in the duties and obligations of marriiage by either or both partners, often leads to frustration and disappointment. However, there is the possibility of a joyful, blissful and fulfilling marital life in the midst of all negative experiences arising from different quarters. The basic indispensable ingredients of a satisfying relationship in marriage are acceptance and love on the part of the husband and submission from the wife. A home where there is peace is a home where there is no fault-finding, hardness and bitterness on the side of both husband and wife. Godly communication is the lubricant of marriage and family relationship. There must be a cordial relationship, with a determination to produce a lively and productive togetherness". Our marriages and family life can be a fore-taste of heaven on earth. We can make it work prayerfully and with determination. May the Lord help us in Jesus' name, Amen.
