There is a consequence for every rational and irrational attitude and action we exhibit – positive or negative. We must reap the fruits of the good and/or bad seeds we sow and the interesting part is that, whatever we do come back to us multiplied. Ecclesiates 11:1 says, ‘Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again’ – by then it must have soaked enough water.
Have you ever thought about this; why do we have so many babymamas and babypapas to the extent that we now celebrate it as a norm?
“Who marriage don epp?” was the answer a celebrity babypapa gave when asked why he wasn’t married. How many young couples can answer the question?
In the western world, you don’t need to marry. We have guys who just date and produce children and the world sends congratulatory messages.
Mr. A was spotted at the beach with Miss B his girlfriend of 6yrs and it seems they are expecting their 3rd child together.
But why can’t they marry? At least, marriage ceremony isn’t as expensive there as it is down here and we are busy copying them. I am not aiming at judging anybody but I am trying to get somewhere with you. A place you might have never thought of going.
The instability in the marriages of celebs and non celebs nowadays could be a reason why the unmarried ones now prefer single fatherhood and motherhood? From the day celebs and non celebs wed, we consciously and unconsciously start counting days for them. If words are not neutral and if we believe that there is power in the tongue then we might have contributed to the break in these marriages when we out of jealousy about the hype of these wedding ceremonies or even out of ‘nothing’ utter careless statements. “Mtcheww! No be this one wey go end tomorrow”.
Negativity triggers the enemy; negative words, negative thoughts, negative moods, everything negative. He feeds on it, it energizes him.
Ephesians 4:29 admonishes, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it benefit those who listen”.
When you visit blogs and read the comments on matters about people’s mistakes and challenges, you pity those involved. Why not say nothing if you got nothing good to say because at the end, “you sef follow cause am.”
