IT’S INTERESTING TO SEE HOW LITTLE WE KNOW ABOUT THE THINGS WE SPEND THE MOST TIME IN CONTACT WITH. THINK ABOUT IT FOR A SECOND; YOU LIVE IN A HOUSE OR APARTMENT FOR YEARS WITH YOUR FAMILY, YET THERE IS A VERY BIG CHANGE THAT YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BUILDING A HOUSE YOURSELF. UNLESS YOU ARE A BUILDER OF COURSE.
I am passionate about cars, and yet I wouldn’t know where to look should the one I drive break down somewhere. I would probably open the bonnet and look at the engine as if I knew what I was doing, but this would be just for show…
Imagine the boiler in your house breaks down, and you just start taking it apart with no regard as to how you will put it back together again? Nuts and bolts all over the floor and you are no closer to figuring out how you will get it to work again.
Instead, when something goes wrong with any of the above, you usually call a specialist, let him fix the problem, pay him, and you have peace of mind knowing you won’t have to worry about it again.
As I was thinking about this the other day, it reminded me how things are for most people when it comes to marriage. They meet someone, “fall in love” and then find themselves married, but they have no clue what to do when things go wrong. And trust me, hiccups do happen. We get married and we are expected to know exactly what to do when problems occur.
Many people have stumbled onto marriage, and even though they didn’t get a manual from the pastor when he married them, they still think that they can deal with everything by themselves. Many are those who instead of fixing things, have made them go from bad to worse because they just keep doing their own marriage DIY without having a clue with what they are really doing.
The Bulletproof Marriage book has been a manual for couples that has lead them to find the necessary tools to not only avoid problems but to make their relationship better.
If you want to build your house (marriage) in a way that it will stand forever, then join us every Saturday in the Love Therapy sessions at 7pm. These will get you ready to know how to deal with every situation effectively.
“For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?” Luke 14. 28-30
