Happiness.

These days when we see some couple and think, oh these people are happy, we may not know otherwise. A lot of couples are having difficulties in their marriages, but out in public they pretend to be happy because they want to maintain appearances and that is the more reason why we have a lot of Christian separation and divorces.

Most Christians have forsaken God; they have handed over the reigns of control in their homes to materialism and worldliness through which they have also invited sorrow, failure, and regrets into their homes forgetting that happiness is not found in pleasure, happiness is not found in position and fame, it is not found in money, neither is it found in cheap glory.

I am exceptionally moved by so-called men and women of God who allowed themselves to be cornered into divorcing their spouses, they were suppose to know better, pray better and try to work out issues that may lead to divorce before it degenerated further. What do they tell their flocks, which reasons do they give for divorce? How can such men continue to lead their flock when they have already disobeyed God?

Genuine happiness can only be achieved when we truly love, honour and care for each other, always considering our partner’s interest before our own. Living a life full of kindness and good deeds.

Marriage is not always a bed of roses; there will be the usual ups and downs, which we must learn to deal with maturely and with wisdom. Couples must be willing and ready to forgive each other for not living up to each other’s expectations and accept the differences in our personality and character; it is only by this that some measure of happiness could be attained.

We need to learn to live with each other happily for the sake of our children. It is quite easy to pass a wrong message across by our attitude to each other.

Shalom!

We need to learn to live with each other happily for the sake of our children . . . mostly for the Christ we serve.

Marriage is not always a bed of roses; there will be the usual ups and downs . . . sometimes more downs than up's but that doesn't mean we have to divorce
