Marriage’s 10 Commandments
September 21, 2011 4 Comments
And wisdom speaks all these words, saying: “Your marriage is your priority which delivers you to a union second in priority only to God.
- You shall have no other spouses besides the one you married.
- You shall not keep for yourself any secret opposite-sex relationships; you shall not consider nor nurture such. For your mate will be jealous, rightfully so. But their love shall be free and unfettered toward you when your life is transparent and your devotion unquestionable.
- You shall not call your mate out of their name when angry, for your mate will resent you for your open disrespect. How you refer to your spouse is how you express your regard for them.
- Remember to spend time with your mate, to keep them a priority. When you are at work, work. But home must have the highest place in your heart.
- Honor your mate, that the days of your marriage may be life-long.
- You shall not deprive your marriage of life by shutting your mate out of your heart, nor by disallowing them access to your intimate thoughts.
- You shall not commit adultery.
- You shall not rob your marriage of yourself by so spending yourself for others, you have nothing left for your mate.
- You shall not deceive yourself about the issues that threaten your marriage but seek good (Godly) counsel to ensure honest and healthy issue resolution.
- You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s spouse, nor his lifestyle, nor his business success, nor his car, nor anything that is your neighbor’s. Build your home according to the grace God shows you!”
The fullness of these laws is summarized in this: Love God with everything you are and your mate as yourself!
