Today's Scripture: "Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers, but a prudent wife is from the Lord." Pr. 19:14

5898. The best gifts have no price tag or return policy. JG


See it.

Prudent provido

Live it.

It's understandable when men get together that we talk and pray about issues concerning men. The Thursday morning disciples' meeting I've led for many years has proven profitable in that way. But one of the things that we adult men all have in common is being able to counsel each other in marriage matters. We laugh and we cry as we've been able to help one another in these issues over the years. Without question all of us consider our wives to be God's gift to us.

As much as Thursday morning is good for men building marital relationships, Tuesday night is far different. There I teach God's word to men who, more times than not, have destroyed their marriage and family relationships. While it would be easy to say the problem is the men's addiction problem, it would be irresponsible to suggest their mates played no role in it. What's amazing is the same Scripture applies for every marital issue and the solution is true for any relationship in any state of disrepair.

Pray it.

Thank you, God, for a marriage partner who loves You as much as I do.
