My Favorite Marriage Scriptures: Cupid Approved

Before we dive into some of my faves, I just want to assure you that I in no way live by these perfectly, but I do strive to! In fact, in all honestly, I’ve been seriously lacking in this area, and this is a great reminder. Valentine’s Day is around the corner, so I decided to keep with the theme of love/marriage/relationships. These scriptures are my personal favorites when it comes to the world of marriage! If you have some favorites that didn’t make my list, please leave them in the comments below, I’d love to check them out!

 Mark 10:9

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 

Genesis 2:24

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Ephesians 5:33

Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Ephesians 5:28

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

Proverbs 8:22

Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.

Okay my fellow wives, if you’re not feeling special as HECK right now, well, you totally SHOULD!

But enough about how the husbands ought to be. Time to take a look at my favorite scriptures pertaining to how we conduct ourselves as wives. It truly is how I strive to be, but of course am not there yet.

Proverbs 31:10-31

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.have…: or, have gotten riches
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Food for Thought

As women, we rely on our friends for venting purposes. Anytime conflict arises, said friends probably go on about ‘you deserve better’ and are always quick to point the finger. But how often do we stop and look in the mirror? I know I don’t. I’d much rather dismiss the issue altogether. But what good does that do?

You see, when you work on yourself, you’ll start to see the circumstances around you improve. You can’t expect your spouse, or anyone else, to change when you yourself remain stagnant. Work on yourself and strive to be the best version of yourself, and I promise those around you will do the same.
