Uncommon Sense #3 – Marriage Matters


Proverbs 24:3-4 states, “By wisdom a house is built, And by understanding it is established; 4 And by knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches.”

 

This Proverb can be taken in two ways. First, there is the obvious house as a physical structure. Second, there is the metaphorical idea of this being a home in the sense of the marriage & family that would live in the physical house. The immediate context of the passage suggests this is the meaning of the Proverb. The precious and pleasant riches would then be the love, joy and peace that fill the home rather than the material things within the house. It takes wisdom to build such a home and knowledge to develop such precious and pleasant character traits within it. Today we’ll examine the Proverbs that give us wisdom for Marriage tomorrow.
