Daily Devotion: Common Sense About Marriage

Bible Reading: Ecclesiastes 9:7-12

Key Verse: Verse 9 - "Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun."

Key Words: Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life

Isn’t it amazing how some men think that the woman they barely know will make a better partner than the wife they loved and lived with for years? And by the way, the same can be said for the woman who throws her life away for a man she barely knows. What a waste! What a shame!

Men, there are a lot of beautiful women in this world, but you need to be content with the wife of your youth.

Think of all the lives that are destroyed by extra-marital affairs…the children, the grandchildren. Think of our previous governor, Robert Bentley, who threw away his life and all who loved him for a few weeks of pleasure.

We were visiting friends when they received a telephone call from their recently married daughter. After several tense minutes on the phone, the mother told the father to pick up the extension. The newlyweds had had their first big fight. In a few moments, the father rejoined us and tersely explained, “Said she wanted to come home.” “What did you tell her?” I asked. “Told her she was home.”

Now, there is some good counsel.

What to do:
✞ Be content with the wife of thy youth…she probably is the only one still willing to love you.
