Proverbs 18e a good marriage

  1. 1. 1 Gospel Baptist Tabernacle 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 Where the Love of God abounds, everyone is welcome. Children’s Church taught by Paul and Marsha Davis during preaching. June 18, 2014
  2. 2. 2 Fifth Sunday June 29 Lakeview Voting Precinct On Hudson Street behind Lakeview Middle School on Cross Street. Paul D is bringing a microwave.
  3. 3. 3 Proverbs 18:22 Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the LORD. That’s God’s Truth. A good marriage doesn’t just happen. Both the husband and wife have to give 100% to the relationship if it works.
  4. 4. 4 Marriage, the union of one man and one woman, is a personal, but not private, relationship with great public significance. Marriage is good for the couple; it is also provides the optimal conditions for bearing and raising children. Marriage makes an essential contribution to the common good. In other words, marriage is good for the individuals, the family, and the culture.
  5. 5. 5 Marriage and Health • On average, husbands and wives are healthier, happier and enjoy longer lives than those who are not married. • Men appear to reap the most physical health benefits from marriage and suffer the greatest health consequences if they divorce. • Married mothers have lower rates of depression than single or cohabiting mothers, probably because they are more likely to receive practical and emotional support from their child’s father and his family.
  6. 6. 6 Marriage and Wealth • Married couples build more wealth on average than singles or cohabiting couples. • Married men earn more money than do single men with similar education and job histories. • Married women are economically better off than divorced, cohabiting, or never-married women.
  7. 7. 7 Children raised by their own married mother and father are: • Less likely to be poor or to experience persistent economic insecurity • More likely to stay in school, have fewer behavioral and attendance problems, and earn four- year college degrees • Less vulnerable to serious emotional illness, depression and suicide • More likely to have positive attitudes towards marriage and greater success in forming lasting marriages
  8. 8. 8 God created marriage: one man and one woman created for one another and choosing to love one another forever. God tells us in His Word how to have a good and successful marriage.
  9. 9. 9 Ephesians 5 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; Ephesians 5 28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: So men are taught to love, nourish (care for), and cherish (value highly) our wives, just as Jesus does the church.
  10. 10. 10 Colossians 3 19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. 1 Peter 3 7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge (thoughtfully and considerately), giving honor unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
  11. 11. 11 Ephesians 5 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. As the husband follows Christ, the wife should follow the leadership of her godly husband. Head – the part most readily taken hold of. Responsibility.
  12. 12. 12 This is God’s Plan for a wonderful and lasting marriage. A man and a woman who each loves the other without selfishness or self-centeredness. A godly husband who lives his life following Jesus. A godly wife who willingly follows the leadership of her husband. Maturity There’s too many adults wanting to live like teenagers; that destroys marriages.
