Fruits of A Good Relationship
April 15, 2011 § 1 Comment
Think about this, there are millions and millions of women in this world, but how will you ever decide on marrying one? For me I personally am looking for someone that doesn’t love me the most in her life, but instead loves Jesus the most. While this may sound cliche, it is the secret to any happy relationship that will bear fruit in both your life and her own life because she is seeking God first. Think about this, the bible spells out that the fruits of the spirit are: Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self- control. (Galatians 5:22-23) If a man can find a woman that will love God more than she will love him, then she will honor the fruits of the spirit in her own life because it’s what God calls everyone one of us to do. Imagine this, if a marriage or a relationship consisted of those nine fruits, it would be fruit in your own life and would not consist of the crap that we all hear about on a daily basis in our own life or in a friends.
A modern example of this relationship would consist of these qualities and much more with God first in both partners life: Love– the couple would love each other and exhibit it in their relationship, Joy– each would live their life with Joy that God has given us from seeking him first and would exhibit a happiness that could not be matched except through Jesus, Peace- the relationship would not have consistent fights or anger exhibited, long suffering– the couple would be able to get through the hardships in each others life and would be able to look beyond the surface and suffer through anything with their partner, kindness– a relationship where they care for each other at every moment of the day and show genuine concern, goodness- A relationship that dwells on the good and strives to do good for each other and for the world, faithfulness– a relationship where they honor the commitment to each other no matter how hard the times may get but honor that God calls us to be faithful to one another,gentleness– a woman that is gentle can speak a thousand words to a man and can calm him down in the worst of all situations, and self control- the most important of these, in regards to a relationship, because if you have self control you aren’t putting yourself first in your life or going after the desires of the world that will tear you relationship apart.
God has a special plan for all of us and we all have our own calling. For me, I hope that God truly has someone special for me lined up because I am wanting to mary the best, so that I can give my best effort to my wife and have no worries of ever being heartbroken- For me and my house we will serve the Lord.
