OUR MISTAKES, OUR TREASURES
Our mistakes, our treasure
The institution of marriage was started by God. He brought two people together whose compatibility was suppose to be unquestionable. Unquestionable because one was brought out of the other.
The situation is not the same today. People of different background, culture, race and sometimes religion come together to live as one. It is to be expected that if Adam and Eve could make mistake, then couples should expect mistakes. However, mistakes should be a treasure that will teach couples and ginger the relationship.
It is saddening that couples these days refuse to learn from or admit their mistakes. The woman keeps claiming right and the man holds on to pride.
Some will even prefer to admit the mistakes to themselves and go on to have another relationship rather than admit wrong to their spouse. They tell themselves “I will make sure I don’t make the same mistakes.” They become the good spouse taking all the perceived “nonsense ” they could not take in their previous marriage.
Mistakes are treasures meant to teach us and shape us into better people. Listen to the complaints of your partner, discard pride, admit wrongs, don’t claim all rights, take steps to be a better person and the devil will be defeated.
