The Lord has never lied. My wife and I, after twenty seven years are still very much I love. As I often tell my wife "God gave me everything when he gave me you ". I wish more couples could experience the love and compassion we have for each other. Thank you Lord!

Its true to say that the LORD is the one who provides for a good wife.

This verse states that it's good to be married. Today's emphasis on individual freedom is misguided. Strong individuals are important but strong marriages are too. God created marriage for our enjoyment, and he pronounced it good. So marriage is a good and enjoyable creation of Gods. Check out Gen. 2:21-25, Prov. 5:15-19 and John 2:1-11... so much more knowledge.

God saw that everything he had done was good. There were peace beauty and harmony! This is what the good God speaks of, so a good wife must or should represent grace for her husband, an undeserved favour. Does she/he love Jesus truly? Does she/he brings peace for you? If yes then you can marry.


Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2013-02-09 20:11:03:

God is the one who finds the wife. As for who meets who, it is through the providence of God that this happens. Study the book of Ruth, and you will see how Boaz found Ruth, and she was a virtuous woman, who feared God, and helped her mother in law, though she was a widow, it was God who put them together. Boaz is the Kinsman redeemer, and this speaks of the Lord Jesus Christ who redeems His bride the Church for the marriage supper of the Lamb. So wait on the Lord, and He will do what He promises.

Can someone explain this verse to me? What is God's intention for this verse? My mom takes this verse and runs with it. Every time I meet a guy she wants to know who approached who.
