    The Lord has never lied. My wife and I, after twenty seven years are still very much I love. As I often tell my wife "God gave me everything when he gave me you ". I wish more couples could experience the love and compassion we have for each other. Thank you Lord!

  • Vernita Johnson on Proverbs 18:22
    This verse states that it's good to be married. Today's emphasis on individual freedom is misguided. Strong individuals are important but strong marriages are too. God created marriage for our enjoyment, and he pronounced it good. So marriage is a good and enjoyable creation of Gods. Check out Gen. 2:21-25, Prov. 5:15-19 and John 2:1-11... so much more knowledge.
  • Salomão on Proverbs 18:22
    God saw that everything he had done was good. There were peace beauty and harmony! This is what the good God speaks of, so a good wife must or should represent grace for her husband, an undeserved favour. Does she/he love Jesus truly? Does she/he brings peace for you? If yes then you can marry.
  • Talisha on Proverbs 18:22
    Can someone explain this verse to me? What is God's intention for this verse? My mom takes this verse and runs with it. Every time I meet a guy she wants to know who approached who.
