Memory verse (Prov31:3): " Do not give your strength to women, Nor your ways to that which destroys kings ".

Great leaders, great ministries, great visions,  have been destroyed by sexual immorality or wrong marriage partners. King Solomon was one of the finest leaders Israel ever had but his leadership was destroyed by his lust for women, the lustful connection between David and Bathsheba the wife of Uriah, brought such terrible consequences in the family and kingdom of David. One Leader who was totally devastated by a wrong wife was king Ahab, he married Jezebel. Jezebel came from an idolatrous family and she brought the worship of Baal in the kingdom of Israel. The consequences of this marriage were so terrible, 70 children of Ahab were all killed, Ahab and Jezebel died terribly, the social and economic strength of the nation declined greatly. And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped him.(1kings16:31)                                                                                             To those who are looking for marriage partners, you have to be careful who you choose to live and walk with. Don’t focus on the flesh or appearances. So many women appear beautiful but their hearts are very ugly. Also women make mistake, they look for financial security. Money is vital in marriage but don’t focus on what money a person has but focus on God’s provision, focus on whether he is a right choice from God for you. In Africa, many parents want their daughters to be married to rich men, and this has forced many to be married to non believers and wrong partners. Many marriages have broken, while others are living in pain and tears because of wrong choices they made. Today there are some misleading teachings about getting a marriage partner, they teach young believers to think of a kind of man or woman they desire, write the features you desire, etc and ask God to give him/her to you (Gen6:2). Others have this school of thought, as long as someone is born again it's okay, go for him/her. This has made marriage to become very cheap and that’s why many marriages break for very cheap reasons. Marriage is God’s will and we need to understand God’s will about who God wants us to marry.
