Let’s see some lessons every couple should learn from the
scissors so that we can become better couples & build enviable
The scissors is always in pairs & that’s where its usefulness is.
Once you see one part & the other part is not there, it is useless no
matter how beautiful it is. The effectiveness of every marriage is
lost when couples are not together. Separation & divorce destroy
the effectiveness & usefulness of every marriage. Remember,
‘united we stand, divided we fall’. Separation is not only when you
separate physically & you are no longer living together. There are
many couples who are together under the same roof but are
spiritually, emotionally, sexually, financially, socially, etc
separated. Are you sure you & your spouse are not separated in
one of these ways?
The togetherness of scissors is not automatic. There is a small
bolt or pin that fix the scissors together in the middle. In the same
vein, if couples must be bounded together like this scissors, there
must be ‘bolts’ that must fix & wed them together that will make
them inseparable. Some of the ‘bolts’ are:
The presence of God
Healthy & joyful life
Good family finance
Hot family altar, etc.
I tried separating this scissors this morning, but the pin was so
deep into it that it was not easy for me to separate them.
The scissors is useless except someone holds it. Couples can’t be
effective except they allow God to hold them and use them to
achieve their marital destiny. No family is really useless. It is
either you are positively useful & that happens when it is God
holding the two of you. You will be negatively useful when it is the
devil holding the two of you. The devil can hold the two of you and
use you to destroy each other, and destroy the future of your
children & even destroy your eternity. Ask yourself as couples.
Who is holding us & holding our family?
Each pair of the scissors has a sharp part & a dull part. The face is
sharp while the back is dull. In the same vein, each couple has his/
her area of strengths & weaknesses. Your spouse is not empty.
Though you might see the ‘dull part’ of your spouse, but if you
want your marriage to accomplish its purpose; you must recognize
the ‘sharp part’ of your spouse. You also must display your ‘sharp
part’ (strengths). Don’t just display your ‘dull part’. That destroys
Synergy in working: The pairs must come together before it can
cut whatever you want to use it to cut. Each pair will bring its
sharpness & join it with the sharpness of the other & cutting will be
done easily & smoothly. In like manner, synergy is the energy of
any family. All this: my money, my car, my own, my thing, me,
mine, myself syndromes will sap away the energy of your
marriage. Synergize your resources, money, connection, visions as
couples, so as to give energy to your marriage to advance it to the
next level. ‘I’ness is the mother of illness in marriage while
‘WE’ness is the mother of wellness of every marriage.
You want energy for your marriage?, then go for synergy.
Only ‘SCISSORS COUPLES’ are SERIOUS COUPLES. You can share
to bless a family. The joy of your family is my priority.
