Building Blocks of a Lasting Marriage

The interesting thing about the building is that whatever you are building, you must have your materials on the ground before you start building.  Another important fact is that even before the materials, you must have a drawing of what you want to develop. The architect must have interpreted the building on paper.  Usually, this contains the measurements, length, breadth, height, and many other things.

This is what God has in mind in the book of Proverbs 14:1, He told us that 

Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands. 

Let’s see other translations.

CEV says,
A woman’s family is held together by her wisdom, but it can be destroyed by her foolishness. (Pro 14:1)

ERV says,
A wise woman makes her home what it should be, but the home of a foolish woman is destroyed by her own actions.

Here, we see the wise woman in action building her home. We also see the foolish woman in action pulling her home down or destroying it through her actions, inactions, and decisions.

God is also seen behind the scenes as the architect, who gives the design of what is to be built.

Every woman is doing something. Every woman is either wise or foolish in what they are doing. Whether you are a professor, a banker, an entrepreneur, a doctor, or a lawyer, you are either a wise woman or a foolish woman.

The question is “Are you building or destroying your home with your hands?” It is easier to say No, how can I with my hands destroy my home? But in reality, you could be destroying your home and the lives of family members if you are foolish.

If you’re not building according to pattern, you are not wise.

Ex 25:40
GW translation,  ‘Be sure to make them according to the plans you were shown on the mountain.” 

MSG translation, ‘Study the design you were given on the mountain and make everything accordingly.

There is a pattern God expects us to build with as wise women. The only thing that will make you build wisely is if you build according to the pattern shown to you. Some of us women are building with a different pattern.  By the pattern and standard of the world.  We are building our homes and family by the pattern of social media, and our schedules, these will not work.

We have to go back to the pattern shown to us by God. That is the only way to guarantee we are building and not tearing down our homes. Women and wives are so powerful that God commits to their hands the building of the home.

Let’s stop here today. We will continue tomorrow by God’s Grace talking about what pattern we should build with.

I pray that we will indeed be wise by building our homes and family according to God’s pattern.
