Growing up as a kid, Smokey the Bear was one of the most prominent commercials being broadcasted. Especially in California. For those of you who don’t know Smokey, he was famous for his line, “Only YOU can be prevent wildfires.” Smokey was advocating that 9 out of 10 wildfires could be avoided. How? Simply by people taking precaution. Most wildfires were breaking out due to careless acts (campfires being left unattended, burning debris, discarded cigarettes, etc). Smokey was telling us that refraining from carelessness would easily prevent most wildfire disasters from breaking out.
Imagine how true this could be for marriage!
Think about it. Most marital issues break out due to the carelessness of one or both spouses. Cheating, lying, arguments, bitterness, anger, financial instability — these are all fires that break out due to carelessness! What if you and your spouse both treated your marriage with extra care? Wouldn’t you be able to avoid most of the issues that are burning and deteriorating your marriage? Absolutely!
If you and your spouse take the extra precaution — your marriage would thrive like you want it to!
From this point on remember: Only YOU and YOUR SPOUSE can prevent marital fires.
What are you doing to keep fires from breaking out in your marriage?
