Its easy to find a new lover

It’s easy to find a new lover, but it’s harder to find an excellent lifetime spouse.

“An excellent wife {or husband) who can find? He or She is far more precious than gold or jewels. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of his life. Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a man or woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” – Proverbs 31:10-31

Although this Bible passage in Proverbs 31 was written from a man’s perspective – when looking for a good wife – many of the virtues described here can also apply to a woman looking for a good husband to marry as well.

In summary, look for someone with the following qualities:

– Faithful to God

– Faithful to the church

– Faithful to his or her spouse

– Loving, gentle, considerate, trustworthy, and kind

– Morally upright, truthful, and honest

– Peace loving disposition; not argumentive or easily angered

– Harworking, not lazy

– Generous and compassionate to the needy; not selfish

– Intelligent and wise

– Attractive and affectionate

Most importantly, pray and ask God to confirm your choice of a life partner. He has just the right person you need to make you happy. Don’t rush into marrying someone that’s not God’s choice for you.
