Proverbs 31:8-10 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Lemuel’s mom is reminding her son not to forget others around him. Oh, how easily we begin to take one another for granted in the fast-paced life in which we live. However, each of us should look to those God has placed in our lives, especially those within our home.
Husbands, it would be a wonderful thing if we would daily thank God for the blessing He has given us in our wives. They are truly a delightful gift from God. In the first book of the Bible, God looked at man and said, I need to create someone who will complete and help that man, and He designed the perfect women just for Adam. He created your wife for you as well.
Wives, it would be proper for you to thank God for creating you with the special bundle of talents and abilities only you have, which makes you the perfect counterpart to your husband. You not only have accomplishments of your own, but also whatever your husband does and whoever your husband is, have a lot to do with what you have helped him become.
Both of you should be thankful that God did not leave either of you to do life alone. As Christians He also gave to each of you the Holy Spirit, which resides in you to help you as you go about fulfilling Gods good pleasure in this relationship.
To those who may be single, you need not worry if there is anyone for you. God has a special purpose for your life. If that purpose includes a mate, then know that God has made someone just for you. Do not get in a hurry but wait on the Lord. Thank Him for his design in life and marriage. Then if you say, “I Do,” be all God intended for you to be.
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:
When we really treasure something given to us, most often our respect for the giver adds great value to the gift. God is the greatest gift giver of all time. The gift He has given you was well thought out and designed with just you in mind. Show God how much you appreciate His thoughtfulness today by how you treat the gift he has given to you.
