WHAT KIND OF PARTNER ARE YOU ?



1: SELFISH/ UNHEALTHY DEPENDENT
Selfish partners only love for their personal gains. Uses partner for personal comfort. They are reluctant to help partner with house responsibilities or business. Rom.7:4

2: UNROMANTIC
Uptight, emotionally insensitive, moody, stingy, have no respect for partner’s emotions. Fun less and tension filled relationships lacking humor and life.Prov.11:26

3: LAY BACK
Absent in conversations, not involved with the kids especially helping out in training and school work and games. Could care less about family business, outings, holiday and development. Leave major decision making to partner. Mostly concerned about making financial contributions but the leave the rest of the home making to the partner.Prov.22:29

4: IMMATURE
Childish, immature and not grown up partners will always have a need to consult with parents to make decisions and sometimes a third party thus opening up the family to a potential privacy intrusion and dignity erosion. The only third party allowed in marital union is God. Prov.20:11

5: SENSITIVE AND TEMPERAMENTAL
Anger and moodiness are the last two things you want in a partner. An angry or a moody partner can be extremely toxic to any relationship. They can be volatile, domineering, argumentative and mostly prone to careless and harmful mistakes that may hurt the family. Prov. 14:17

6: SIMPLE AND GULLIBLE
Sometimes people like to take advantage of people they consider too nice and simple. Prov. 14:18. There is no point giving out to everybody at the expense of your partner and family. You are not everybody’s husband/wife or mother/father. You are allowed to be good and generous but that should begin from your household or your Jerusalem. Gal. 6:10

7: SINGLE MINDSET
The formula for a great marital relationship has always been 1+1=1. You can never have only one person in a marriage. The wisdom of any successful relationship is the ability to produce one person from two different personalities. (Gen. 2:24). A partner still with a single oriented mindset will always find themselves doing things without consulting their partner. They do not respect the marriage.

8: RUN AWAY
Things may not go right all the time. Sometimes things may go south and partners will need to join hearts and rub minds to find a great solution and a way out. But if one of the partners is always a problem dodger or a runaway type, then the family find themselves under most of the time, reeling from one problem to another.You might want to pray not to have a partner like Demas 2 Tim.4:10

9: CONTROL FREAK
Don’t mind to be treated as king or queen while the other partner is the subject or servant. They like to bark out orders and expect the partner to simply obey. A woman like Jezebel will nag you into error. 1 King 21:1-16

10 MEAN AND UNGRATEFUL
Nabal was a partner who was greedy, mean and didn't know how to return favor. 1 Sam. 25:5-20 But for a wise wife, he almost brought tragedy upon the family.

11: LOVING AND CARING
Caring and loving relationship is built on the platform of mutual contributions of materials , emotions, time and energy for the family. Partners who share love and responsibility treating each other with honor, respect and dignity will always enjoy themselves and their relationship. It is godly and always full of blessings.( Eph. 5:22-25, 1 Pet 3:7, 1Tim.5:8

If you need to be #11, you will need the Lord Jesus Christ working His wonder in your heart to turn your life around.
Jesus alone is the perfect love giver and maker. If you will allow Him to work in you by the Holy Spirit and through his Word you will emerge a good and able partner.
