Dear Couple, Pray, Pray And Pray Part 3

Continued from yesterday
 
 
We were talking about things you need to pray against in your family and we identified selfishness as one of them. We are still looking at the different sides of selfishness.
 
c. Selfishness in commitment
 
How committed are you in the marriage? Is apology always one sided? Do you care about ending a disagreement or you always wait for your spouse to say sorry even if it would take a year, you really do not care?
 
Are you really committed about the marriage or you are committed to your ego? Are you committed to making it work, or you are committed to making your spouse bow?
 
Who apologizes all the time? That is the most matured! Take it or leave it, that is the truth. Saying “sorry” is maturity,.
 
Refusing to say “sorry” whether you are wrong or right is a form of rebellion, and it is not wise to sow rebellion into your own home.
 
The spouse who is committed to the marriage has no problem offering a GENUINE apology. He or she is just not comfortable when you are apart.
 
Anytime you are comfortable when there is an issue, when you are okay with some underlying problems, without an effort to end an issue, you need to check your heart and pray more.

 
d. Selfishness in raising the children


 
There can be selfishness in raising the children. You have never been to your children’s school. You don’t even know which classes they are. You don’t know who bathes for them, or how they eat.

You are always buried in whatever you are doing. This is a definition of selfishness, however you want to look at it. It is even more intense when both of you are building a career, and you are bot busy.
 
Raising the children should be a joint effort, so that you can have emotionally balanced children. Now, you don’t need to go and accuse your spouse over this, I am only pointing us out to what we need to pray about.

 
e. Selfishness in outings


 
You go out with colleagues, go out with friends, go out with the whole world except your spouse! Hey, that is extremely wrong! You need to pray against such selfish attitudes and then take action to make adjustments. 

 
f. Selfishness in cooking


 
Is this possible? Yes, the husband insists all the time that his best food must be on the table for everybody. It is really unfair when his best food is beans!
 
Or the wife cooks only what she likes and does not take into consideration the preferences of others!
 
It is also selfishness when the wife refuses to cook or make provision for meals by saying “I thought nobody is hungry!” 

 
It is selfishness when the husband never helps out in the kitchen, especially when there are no house-helps. Nothing is wrong with the husband helping out to cook sometimes or helping out with the dishes.

Leaving her to sweat it out all by herself while you are watching football or listening to news is another level of selfishness.
