Day 127 – Playing by the Rules


‘Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.’ Proverbs 14:1

It is important in marriage to play by Gods rules. If in a marriage you a have made all the right choices and you do not play by Gods rules, there is likely to be problems. We look at the example of Adam and Eve in the Bible, in their situation there was no case of making any bad choices; in fact, there was no choice at all. God made Eve for Adam’s ribs, and presented her to him as his wife. Adam then declared ‘this is now the bone of my bones, and the flesh of my flesh’ (Genesis 2:21-23).

Even in this first marriage relationship, God gave Adam and Eve instructions to obey.  It was because of their disobedience to God that sin entered the world. It was in this first marriage in the Bible that we saw the first murderer! When we disobey God we do not play by the rules. Our home is only sure to succeed if we play by God’s rules.

Proverbs 14:1 a woman is to participate constructively in the marriage. Criticism can be both constructive and destructive. We should then choose to do things in our relationships that will be constructive. If we choose to do destructive thing we can expect to get a bad result. When we do not play by the principles laid out for us in the Bible, we are not likely to obtain good results. May God grant you wisdom.
