This lesson is about finding a wife biblically.  In God’s original plan for marriage, the woman was created to be a help meet for her husband.

Marriage teaches you about the relationship you have with the Lord – you are to love your wife like the Lord loves the church.

Your wife is someone in whom you can confide – you are one flesh – no one knows you better than your wife – my wife advises me well and prays for me.

Here are some things to include in your relationship with your wife:

  • Love her
  • Pray with her
  • Be honest with her
  • Protect the boundaries between you
  • Go to Church with her
  • Read the Bible together
  • Be willing to change, as necessary
  • Be willing to stand your ground
  • Keep Jesus in the center

And here are some pointers in looking for a wife:

  • She must be saved
  • She must love you
  • She must be submissive
  • She must be faithful
  • She must be virtuous – Prov 31
  • She should be beautiful [Inwardly – the hidden man of the heart] – 1 Pet 3 – she doesn’t need a lot of outward adorning to feel good about herself – her adorning should be in moderation.

Conclusion: Remember Prov 19:14, a prudent wife is from the Lord!
