Prof. Mgbeke’s Sunday Sermon: July 10, 2022
Dear Young Man, Please Marry Right – Your Life Depends On It!
One of my favorite people on this planet is having a landmark celebration very soon, and I think I am even more excited about it than the people celebrating.
Such has been the kind of happiness and impact this person has consistently given me and all around him for decades, and his life is indeed worth celebrating greatly!
However, my message today is not about him but the woman God blessed him with in his youth. Oh, she greatly reminds me of a scripture I even spoke about here a few weeks ago, and I would like to refer back to it again today as I admonish our young men especially…
Proverbs 31: 10-12: “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.”
My darling brothers, please do all you can physically and spiritually to ensure you marry a good woman o! It is the difference between life and death for a man; the woman he chooses to be his lifemate!
That woman must be your wife, lover, sister, mother, best friend, and even more importantly, your defender and backbone all the days of your life. If you want to know just how important this is, look at the example of some great men in the scriptures and what impact their women had on their lives!
For David, he would have gone off to slaughter Nabal and avenged himself, which is something God hates, but for the intervention of a wise woman who came into his life that day – read 1 Samuel 25.
On the contrary, Ahab would have had a better life and reign as king over Israel, but for a certain Jezebel, he got entangled with – read 1 Kings 16: 28-33.
The summary of my message to you, my young brothers, today is this: Look at physical examples around you, as much as you read about the spiritual ones, and seek wisdom and guidance from them.
Do not end up with a woman who would not “do you good and not evil all her days,” even as my favorite person’s wife, the virtuous, amazing, and ever delectable Joke Silva has always been and still is to him all his days and life with her!
Learn from the “great cloud of witnesses” around you, and prayerfully and calmly seek God’s face for that woman who will be to you like Joke has been to her husband all their lives together.
Remember: “House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the Lord.” – Proverbs 19:14.
May the Lord lead and guide you to the place of your rest and cause all deception and vanities to bow before you as you seek HIS blessed choice for you, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
