22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing
and obtains favor from the Lord
I am so happy to see this verse, aren't you? I mean after all, Solomon is kind of hard on us women, always talking about our mouths and then throwing things in like those leaky faucet or corner of the attic verses.
Husbands--are you listening here? It is a good thing you married us. So there!
Lol, I thought about ending today's post right there, just to see what your reaction would be. But since the whole purpose that I feel God led me to do this study is to study...I guess that we'd better get a bit more deeply involved.
I guess the obvious question is...is it a good thing? Do you give your husband reasons--on a daily basis--to be thankful that he married you? When he comes home from work is this what he is greeted by?
(June Cleaver from Leave it to Beaver for those that don't know. Her character often gets teased as she is the ultimate housewife. Everything is always perfect. Her hair, her dress, her food, her house.)
Or do we greet our husbands like this:
(Rosanne--her tv character was sloppy, disrespectful, etc.)
My illustrations may seem silly. But really, think about the verse, and think about it. Which would your husband rather be greeted by?
Your husband chose you. Above every other woman in the world..he wanted you.
Tonight when he comes home...give him a reason to be thankful once again that he did choose you.
Oh, and p.s.--the greatest thing that you can do for your husband is to serve the Lord and put God first in your life.
