Rule #2 of Marriage

From the writings of Sumner Wemp

Rule # two for a wonderful marriage.

Rule no.2 Keep courting, DATING, after you get married.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 7:14a

"The Christian husband brings holiness to his marriage" Five suggestions for men to encourage time, dating, with his wife:

1. A marriage relationship is dynamic and always changing. Stay in tune by dating and learning what is new,

2. Create a safe environment to discuss the adventures of life while on a date. Stay clear of walls and discuss positive and kind topics.

3. Plan for the future. Dare to dream! Take time on a date to share what you want the future to look like. Make a plan.

4. Dating started your relationship with a one on one alone time --- use dating to build your relationship to the next level of intimacy and block the pull of the world from your relationship.

5. All cars need regular maintenance. Gas, oil changes, tire work etc. The more you maintain your car the better it performs. Marriage is like that and dating is the maintenance for marriage. The more dating or marriage maintenance you do the better the performance of the relationship. Doesn't that make sense?

Women will work ten times harder to make the marriage work. Come on men, you are the "leader" in the home. God said so! "Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God" 1 Cor. 11:3. Lead your marriage to the shop, go on a date, and have it serviced. Do these five things. You will be glad you did.

Prayer: Father, bless this man of God and may he lead his family to a marriage filled with love, joy and peace, for his good and Your glory. In Jesus name.

Scripture: "Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God" Rom. 11:33.

A great marriage is the best witness for God that I have ever seen. So strive to have a great godly marriage and be the best witness you can.
