Day 123 – The Teamwork of Marriage
9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. 11 Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? Ecclesiastes 4:9-11 (NKJV)
This is Gods wisdom demonstrated in teamwork and marriage. In system design there is a convention around system failure which states that if a system should fail there should always be a way that things can be corrected. This is what God has beautifully put in place in a marriage relationship. If one person should fall or falter, if you have had a bad day, if you need a person to rely on, the perfect place to go would be home, to your spouse. They would lift you up, encourage you, and be a pillar in the time when your world seems to be crumbling. This was God’s intention. God never intended that one spouse should be a burden to the other, but that marriage should be a support system of cooperation, growth and peace.
As you reflect on these words, you might need to make some necessary decisions that will change the way you relate and respond to your spouse at home. Can she be sure that there is a shoulder on which she can cry when the need arises and she will be comforted? Can he depend on your support in challenging time and he will not feel ashamed? Make up your mind today to do all you can to make your home a haven for your spouse and children, and God will help you. Have a great day.
