When Esau was forty years old, he married Judith daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and also Basemath daughter of Elon the Hittite. They were a source of grief to Isaac and Rebekah. Genesis26:34-35 New International Version
Esau was a wild man and did not walk with Jehovah. He took worldly wives and it caused no end of grief towards his mother.
Should we not learn from this?
When seeking a wife or husband should we not wait and obey Jehovah’s choice for us? Of course the spouse must be Christians first.
Statistics prove that very seldom does it last when one of the spouses is not a Christian or they will cause the Christian spouse to leave Jehovah’s family. This causes many fights, heartaches and divorce.
Do not be in such a rush to get married that you hurry into a disaster.
He who rushes hurries to disaster. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Please Jehovah Adonnai (the Lord is sovereign) help me to always be attentive and obedient to Your choices in my life. After all, I am finite and only see through the port hole while You are infinite and see through the telescope. I humbly beseech You in the name of He who saw before time began Your calling in His earthly ministry Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
