Themes in Proverbs: Marriage and Family

Proverbs 18:22

He who finds a wife finds a good thing And obtains favor from the LORD.

 

The book of Proverbs teaches many lesson regarding the “strange woman” (Proverbs 2:16-19). This strange woman is synonymous with sexual immorality.  We are constantly warned of falling prey to relationships that do not honor God.

By contrast, the Proverbs writer also has much to say concerning the martial relationship, the building block to our society, and the family that flows from it. Throughout the next weeks, our bulletin articles will have marriage and family as their theme. My prayer is that you will reflect on these messages and compare your life and relationships to the standard God has set for us.
