WHOEVER FINDS A WIFE FINDS A GOOD THING

Prov.18/22 Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor of the LORD.

In the beginning GOD created man and woman and they became one flesh. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife and they shall become one flesh. Why does a man desire a wife? A man desires a wife because something is missing without her in his life. He is not complete. There is a vacuum in his life. He needs to love and be loved. What does a wife bring to her husband? A wife brings to her husband love, joy, companionship, pleasure, accountability, counsel, completeness, and hopefully ultimately children. Marriage is holy, honorable and good. GOD said in the HOLY SCRIPTURES that it was not good for man to live alone. So when a man finds a wife he finds a good thing and obtains favor of the LORD. For this reason a man looks for a wife and is not content until he finds her.

RESOLVING CONFLICT

“The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him,”  Proverbs 18:17

For those responsible to help resolve conflicts, whether parents, teachers, church or government leaders, today’s verse from Proverbs makes a good point, and indirectly gives us good advice: it’s good to hear out both parties when their views differ.

It might be our children, our students, or even what can be more complex situations in a church fellowship or the legislative and legal issues that come before our government leaders. We need to hear out both sides of an issue, and not be too hasty to side with the first one to make their case.

May God give all of us who have these responsibilities both wisdom and also patience, which in this case, seems to go with wisdom in helping us understand the issues and resolve a conflict wisely.
