She Married Him Today

Friday 2nd December 2022 Devotion
Scripture:- 1 Corinthians 13
Topic:- She Married Him Today

At the end of the wedding party, her mother gave her a newly opened Bank savings Passbook, with $1000 deposited in it.

She told her, “My dear daughter, take this Passbook.

Keep it as a record of your married life.

Whenever something happy and memorable happens in your new life, put some money in.

Write down what it’s about next to the amount.

The more memorable the event is, the more money you can put in.

I’ve done the first one for you today. Do the others with your husband.

When you look back after many years, you will know how much happiness you’ve both shared.’

She shared this with him after getting home.

Both of them thought it was a great idea and couldn’t wait to make the next deposit!

This is what the Passbook looked like after a while.

On 7th February, she deposited $100, his first Birthday celebration after Marriage.

On 1st March, she deposited $300, she gets a Salary raise.

On 20th March, she deposited $200, for a Vacation.

On 15th April, she deposited $2000, she’s Pregnant!

On 1st June, he deposited $1000, He gets a big Promotion, and so on.

However, as the years went by, they began fighting and arguing over trivial things.

They didn’t talk much. They regretted that they had married the nastiest person in the world. There was no more love.

One day she talked to her Mother. ‘Mom, we can’t stand it anymore. We have decided to divorce. I can’t imagine how I decided to marry this guy!’

Her mother replied, ‘Sure, that’s no big deal. Just do whatever you want, if you really can’t stand it.

But before that, do one thing. Remember the savings Passbook I gave you on your wedding day?

Take out all money and spend it first. You shouldn’t keep any record of such a poor marriage.’

She agreed with her mother. So she went to the Bank and was waiting in the queue to cancel the Account.

While she was waiting, she took a look at the Passbook record. She looked, and looked, and looked.

Then the memory of all the previous joyful moments came back to her.

Her eyes were filled with tears. She left and went home.

When she got home, she handed the Passbook to her hubby and asked him to spend the money before getting divorced.

So the next day, he went to the Bank and was waiting in the queue to cancel the Account.

While he was waiting, he took a look at the Passbook record. He looked, and looked, and looked.

Then the memory of all the previous joyful moments came back to him. His eyes were filled with tears.

He left and went home. He gave the Passbook back to her. She found a new deposit of $5000.

And a line next to the record: ‘This is the day I realized how much I’ve loved you throughout all these years.

How much happiness you’ve brought me.’

They hugged and cried, putting the Passbook back into the safe.

Marriage is not a game, it’s not easy……but it’s beautiful…… will fight and argue, this is normal.

Because both of you came from different backgrounds, and different homes…..were raised by different parents, beliefs, and morals.

So you cannot expect that everything you say will be accepted by your spouse without their opinion being tendered first.

So before you give up, think back to the good times and to what brought you together in the first place.

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, help me to understand and love my spouse henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Weekend!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
