The Due Benevolence Clause…

The Due benevolence clause…
marriage giving
1 Cor 7: 3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
As I have counselled folks in marriages over the years, there have been times when I hear: ‘If he wants sex, he better treat me right, or he’s sleeping on the sofa!’, occassionally, a few brave and honest women have said: ‘When I don’t fulfill his expectations, he stonewalls me, and sleeps on the other side of the bed. Makes me feel dirty and ashamed when I want sex’. This verse ends both sides of this game. God made sex to be joyful, honorable, and holy in a marriage relationship, and we are not to withold from one another, for any reason, other than times of prayer and fasting. In this rough and tumble, high tech, often brutal world, seems God gave sex to married couples as an anesthetic, a comfort and stress release from some of the rough edges on life. Enjoy the ride!
Let’s pray:
‘Father, I pray for married couples that are struggling sexually, that you would bless their sex life, with intimacy and passion, that brings grace and comfort to their marriage relationship, and homes, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’
