A Good Wife
Proverbs 18:22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the LORD.
Beverly, my wife, has a birthday this week, and I thank God for the day she was born. You see, I am one of those men who have obtained favor from the Lord because I found a good wife. She is a blessing to me.
Notice this scripture says “finding a wife is a good thing.” Men, if you want a good wife you have to go out and find one. Finding a good wife is like panning for gold; it takes some work but she’s well worth the effort because when you find her you will receive favor from the Lord.
Now you might be asking, how can finding a good wife bring the Lord’s favor to me? Well, it’s pretty simple. A good wife is a godly person, a God honoring person, a God first kind of person… If your wife puts God first—that means ahead of you, and ahead of the kids, and ahead of her work, and especially ahead of herself—then you, as her husband, will receive God’s favor because she has God’s favor. If your wife blesses God with her life then God will bless her, and when God
blesses her all that blessing will run over on you.
How is my wife a blessing to me? She loves me despite the mess that I am. She supports me in all my doings. She is there for me when I am sick. She is there for me when I am down. She shares the best of times with me and she sticks with me through the worst of it all. She puts up with all my dreams and schemes. She mourns over my losses and she celebrates my victories. I found a good thingwhen I found a good wife, and God’s favor has been raining down on me ever since. Happy birthday Bev.
Have a God filled Week,
