5. Attend Church Together: Everyone goes on with the notion that they have relationships all figured out. They think that it’s physical, it’s emotional, it’s mental, heck even financial. While all that may be true and great aspects to focus on, what about the spiritual. People feel that once they have all of the worldly things under control in their relationships, then nothing else needs to be done. That is where you are wrong. In order for your union to continue to remain strong, you must focus and rely on the spiritual aspect of your relationship. Now-a-days, people have to wrong misconception about church. This is the main reasons why many marriages and relationships fail. You must keep God first in all that you do.
Attending church together as a couple or even a family, helps your spirits to connect. It draws you closer to each other. It helps you both to understand each other on a deeper level. Relationships without God becomes subject to worldly temptations. When you don’t have God in your relationships, you tend to live without a conscious. You fall into all the things the devil wants you to. You lie, you commit adultery, you have children out of wedlock, you do things that you think you should feel guilty for. But, if you have God in your relationships, he will lead and keep you on the right path. He’ll tell you, that woman isn’t for you, or think before you speak. He’ll guide you towards the right direction on how to handle certain situations.
Putting God in your relationship also works things out. If you all are worried about finances, both of you all should pray and ask God to work it out. Having problems between the two of you, pray, God will straighten it out. Problems with the children? Pray, God will fix them. When you put forth effort to focus on the spiritual part of your relationship, you won’t have time to lie, cheat, steal, or hang out late at night. You’ll only have time to figure out ways to make your relationship better and everlasting.
Now, one thing I want to point out in this particular tip is that this is for people already in a relationship. If you aren’t in a relationship, this can apply to other aspects of your life. This can apply to family and friends. No matter what aspect of your life it applies to, you should focus on the spiritual. Keep God first. Even for those of you seeking love, keep God first. He will tell you who is for you and who isn’t. He will put the right person in the right place at the right time. Just be patient.
Another thing I want to point out for the single readers, please under no circumstances should you take my advice and go to church to look for a man. While going to church can help a relationship work for the better, there are a lot of hypocrits in church. When I say attend church to better your lives, listen to the word of God. Listen to the sermon. The sermon could apply to a problem you all may be going through. Don’t go to church for people. This is why church isn’t effective for many people because they go to church for people instead of going to church to hear the word of God. Keep in mind, people aren’t always who they seem to be. This is why the spiritual aspect of your life is important. Even for my married couples and unmarried couples, keep the spiritual aspect of your lives at the front. All the rest will follow.
