- God created the Institution of Marriage!
- God created Family and the various relationships within it.
Marriage is not a CONTRACT but rather a COVENANT RELATIONSHIP.
God Created Marriage and it is a very good thing!
An Excellent, Prudent Spouse is an Invaluable Gift from the Lord
Proverbs Strongly warns us to pursue Purity and Faithfulness Proverbs 4:23 “Keep (Guard) your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.”
Proverbs 5:15-18 “Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well. Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares? Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers. May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.”
How can you express your affection and appreciation for your spouse in a fresh way?
How can you communicate that they are an invaluable gift from the Lord?
What is something NEW you can learn about your spouse?
1. Marriage is a Covenantal Relationship created by God
2. Through Wisdom, love and respect, we are to pursue a God-honoring marriage relationship.
3. Only within the Boundaries of Marriage are we free to rightfully express and receive intimate love.
Proverbs is packed with PRINCIPLES that when applied TEND to have Certain RESULTS/CONSEQUENCES as the case may be.
What Proverbs is NOT… is a Cookbook….It is NOT a FORMULA…and it’s NOT even PROMISES!
