Day 126 – The Proper Foundation for Marriage
‘Can two walk together, except they be agreed?’ Amos 3:3
Marriage can be likened to making an egg omelette with two eggs. If one egg is good and the other egg is bad, the whole omelette will be bad. Same way, if you select a spouse with fundamental principles at odds with yours, you have laid a wrong foundation, and the marriage is not likely to work. If you fear God and your spouse does not, this is a fundamental disagreement and that marriage is not likely to work – no matter how much you think you ‘love’ each other.
If you are still single, consider what the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:14 ‘be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?’ (KJV). Choosing to marry a co-believer, that you also both love each other is the beginning. Choosing a spouse based on external factors alone is very problematic. The bible say in proverbs 31:30 ‘Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.’ Same goes for the lady, consider well when a guy approach you for dating with the intention of marriage, no matter how handsome or rich he might be, if he is not born again, it is a NO!
Choose a lover among your friends that love Christ. Choose wisely. God has promised to guide you as you prayerfully seek him, and follow His leading with trust.
