Whom Should You Marry?

Posted by Raymund Tamayo

“It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a contentious woman in a whole house.” – Proverbs 21:9

During Biblical times, women were often viewed as men’s property, good for bearing children and not much more. 

The Book of Proverbs addressed the young men of that time who were approaching the age of marriage to take a different view.

Improve Yourself (No One Else Can)

Note: Taken from “God is in the Small Stuff” by Bruce Bickel & Stan Jantz

“No, dear friends, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.” – Philippians 3:13, NLT 
Will there ever be a time when you will stop learning and improving yourself? 

Will it happen when you get your high school diploma? Not then, because the education process has only just begun. 

At college graduation? Hardly, because the lessons of the real world await. 

When you become a parent with your own children to raise? Certainly not, because every parent has to stay mentally sharp just to keep up with the “new math.” 

Will you be able to stop learning and improving when you reach your “golden years?” That’s doubtful, because then you’ll need more wits than ever to figure out all of the discounts to which you are entitled.

Give God Time

Raymund and Denielle's Note: This is an essay taken from "God is in the small stuff - and it all matters" by Bruce & Stan. We reformatted the paragraphs to make a better online reading experience.

"Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for Him to act." - Psalm 37:7, NLT
If there's one thing we need in the midst of our busy, loud, and nervous lives, it's the inner peace and quiet and assurance that only God can give.

It's the only way to see God's purposes for us, let alone keep our sanity.

The thing is, God doesn't yell out and say, "Hey, you're neglecting me. Sit still for a moment so you can hear me."
