Just turn on the radio, switch it to any
station of your choice, what you are
likely to hear is LOVE songs. Have you
ever wondered why love songs are
rampant these days? It is because love
is expressed as an action and
experienced as a feeling. People tend to
pour out their feelings into songs. You hear songs of
new love, songs of old love, songs of disappointed
love, songs of grateful love.
Ann Landers quipped, “Love is friendship that has
caught fire. It is quite understanding, mutual
confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty

perfection and makes allowances for human
We are in a sinful world where immorality is the order
of the day. A godly relationship is to be built on this
earth so as to have a fulfilled future. Below are some
points we have to follow in building a godly
TALK ABOUT GOD
Quite a lot of youths feel that talking about God is out of vogue and that
it is archaic. Talking about God does not make you less sociable, it
makes your relationship stronger. Talk about God and you will nd out
your partner’s beliefs.
Once a relationship is void of prayers, it is going down the drains.
There is no how you will not come across challenges in your
relationship, it is prayer that will do a whole lot of good in this
Even if you feel there is no problem in the relationship and there is no
reason to pray, why not thank God for the opportunity He has granted
you to be in a relationship and the happy times you both have
Pray together so that you will know about the burden on your partner’s
mind. Remember, prayer is the master key.
MAKE SACRIFICES FOR EACH OTHER
Be willing to go out of your ways to help one another. If he is a football
freak, you should be able to watch the football with him even if you nd
it boring. And if she loves watching soap operas, watch I with her.
AVOID SEXUAL IMMORALITY
Avoid activities that might cause lustful thoughts. Be it sitting on each
other’s lap, sensual kissing and so on. The marriage bed should be
undefiled. Save sex for marriage. It worths the wait. Encourage one
another to be sexually pure.
Talk about the future. It will build love and security in your relationship.
LEARN TO SAY SORRY
There is always the opportunity for r3econciliation, saying sorry to your
partner does not remove anything from you. There is no big deal in
saying sorry to the one you love. Make it a necessity to come to some
kind of agreement.
INVITE YOUR PARTNER TO YOUR CHURCH
When you fellowship with each other in your different churches, you
get to know each other’s style of worship.
SET YOUR MIND TO LEARN AND APPLY THE
LESSONS TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP
You will denitely hurt each other’s feelings. Whenever anything
happens, learn your lesson and keep moving forward.
MEET EACH OTHER’S FRIEND
Knowing each other’s friends matters a lot in a relationship. When you
know your partner’s friends, you will be able to know the type of
company that he/she keeps. Show me you friends and I will tell you
who you are, so the adage says.
EXCHANGE OF GIFTS
Many ladies have the mentality that it is only the guy that should be
giving the lady gifts but there is no law that teaches that. It is meant to
be done by both parties. Give each other gifts. It is not only on special
occasions that gifts should be given out.
Majority sees this as mere waste of money when they can easily cook it
at home. Eating out is needed at times in your relationship, it affords
you the opportunity of discussing issues well. Do not count it as
Visit places of fun together. Go to the cinemas, shopping malls and
other places you feel would be the best hangout for you both.
This strengthens a relationship. Make it a point of duty to call each
other everyday. Call to hear your partner’s voice.
