Tonic you need in your courtship

1. Be willing and teachable; seek parental guidance and advice from your church leaders (i.e. pastors, elders and deacons). Freely interact with godly married couples and observe their Christian marriage lifestyle and family life.

2. Ask good questions about each other’s convictions, values, aspirations and other pertinent matters to prepare yourself for marriage.

3. Learn more of each other in areas of communication, spiritual convictions, working life, church ministry and family background.

4. Pray often together for loved ones and each other

5. Have regular Bible study together. Share what you have learnt from the Lord in your personal devotions, reading of Christian books or Sunday sermons.

6. Learn to understand each other's personal likes, differences and preferences. Be clear about the character and interests of him/her.

7. Serve God together in church (e.g. choir, fellowship groups, home-based Bible study groups, etc.) in preparation to serve God as a married couple one day. Learn to complement each other as a ministry team.

8. Equip yourselves with adequate understanding of Christian courtship & marriage through reading the Bible and other wholesome Christian literature.

9. Exercise self-control (Gal 5:22, 23) in your passion towards each other; be determined to keep yourselves pure for marriage (Heb 13:4).

10. Meet the siblings and parents of the other side in due time and have a strong and vibrant relationship with them as well.
