Don’t Choose a Mate Based on Emotions & Feelings

Most of us lack the necessary knowledge and wisdom about marriage, and thus often choose a spouse based on emotions and feelings. Emotions and feelings definitely play a role, but marriage is about much more than what we simply feel. Marriage is about God and glorifying God. It is about becoming holy and sanctified. It is about seeking His Will for a spouse, and – once married – glorifying Him as a couple. That’s why it is so important to choose a spouse wisely and not just depend on feeling butterflies in our stomach.

Oftentimes we dismiss potential red flags in the name of love, convincing ourselves that they are not that big of a deal, or that our love can conquer all. However, in reality, a red flag almost always signals a deeper problem. You will never find the perfect spouse and you will never be one yourself, but it is important to be discerning, because marriage is a lifetime decision.

God wants us to seek His wisdom and His knowledge in choosing a spouse and cultivating a marriage. But our culture has a way of luring us away from this gift that God designed for a man and a woman. John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Satan will try to destroy your marriage, but God has a wonderful plan.
