The Curate Pastor of Christ Apostolic Church, Oke Ibukun Araromi, Amazing Grace Zonal Headquarters, Pastor David Abolarin has said that couples must understand the season they are passing through, stating that if they fail to understand this, to cope will be very difficult.



He said that no family want to experience hard time but no family can escape it, adding that inability to understand this may lead to break up.



Pastor David as he is fondly called stated this while preaching recently on the theme "Understanding the Family Season."



He noted that couples need to have endurance, faith, hope and wait on God if they want to overcome hard times in marriage.



According to him, there are four seasons in marriage which he said are hard beginning, maturity season, comfortable season and flourishing season.



Pastor David said hard beginning is a season of dryness when there is no money to feed the family, noting that when a family has a hard beginning, it will take the grace of God to survive.



The Cleric explained further that;" maturity season is a season when many couples divorce because they didn't understand the season. It is a season of fighting or quarrelling and if the couple didn't understand this, it could lead to break up. Understanding each other, attitude adjustment, accepting mistakes and learning to say 'I am sorry' are the way to overcome this season."



He said that any family that want to experience comfortable season must pass through the first two season.



According to him, focusing on God, humility, patiently labouring-on and sowing seeds can sustain someone in this season.



"Flourishing season is a season of plenty where every member of the family is healthy and having enough. No family can attain this season without passing through hard beginning, maturity season and comfortable season. To sustain flourishing season couples need to remember where they are coming from, build their house on Christ, be faithful to God's word, be in tune with God, be obedient to His command and make plans," he concluded.
