Topic: A Prudent Wife
Bible Text: 19:10-20
Key Verse: “House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD” (Proverbs 19:14).
MESSAGE: As a wife and mother in a small 18th century English parish, Susanna Wesley herself received little recognition for how she managed her household, raised and educated more than a dozen children and coped with an idealistic and occasionally difficult clergyman-husband. Yet, from her personal influence and loving home, came a son who would experience spiritual awakening and have a worldwide ministry.
Indeed, it might be said that the movement called Methodism had its foundations in the home of Susanna Wesley. Solomon spoke so many useful proverbs under the influence of the Spirit of wisdom he received from the Lord. From the text today, many sayings are presented in form of comparisons and contrasts. Anger and wrath of the king is compared to a roaring rampaging lion, while his favour is as dew upon the grass.
DCLM Daily Manna Devotional Messages: Glory of the Millennial Kingdom
After speaking about the calamity of foolish sons and the problems of having a contentious wife, he revealed that the source of a prudent wife is God. We may get houses and riches through inheritance from our fathers, but a wife with good understanding and wisdom comes from God. It is true that advancement in technology has made transportation and communication faster and easier. With the creation of the Internet, it has become easier to search for and get information about anything within seconds.
That life is now on the easy and fast lane proved by the reality of numerous dating sites where young people are encouraged to hook up with their life partners; we also have match-making radio/TV programmes that help arrange marriages. The question is, can prudent wives that fear God emerge from such a venture? Our young men and women should understand that God is still our Matchmaker and that He still leads His own to make the right choice of a marriage partner.
Thought for the day: Do not be anxious; God still leads.
