Enjoy life with the wife you love all the days of your fleeting life, which has been given to you under the sun, all your fleeting days. For that is your portion in life and in your struggle under the sun. Ecclesiastes 9:9 HCSB
I am very fortunate to have a wonderful wife who is also my best friend. She has always been there for me through the good and the bad times. She has been my partner in ministry, a great mother to our four children, and is now a wonderful grandmother to our two grandchildren. God has been very good to give me a good wife to share all the days of my life. I look forward to the years ahead as we grow old together.
In addition to this verse, Solomon also wrote a proverb about marriage. “The man who finds a wife finds a treasure and receives favor from the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22). He also wrote about the virtues of a wife in Proverbs 31. We all should appreciate the companion God has given us.
Challenge: Do something today to let your spouse know that you love and appreciate her. Look for ways to strengthen your marriage such as attending a marriage enrichment conference. Thank God for your mate. If not married, pray that the marriages of your friends and neighbors would be strengthened.
