TRUE LOVE BUILDS

For every house is builded by some man, but he that built all things is God. Hebrews 3:4

God who is love shows us that true love builds up and does not put people down.  God created the first man to be both a lover and a builder.  ” And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.” (Genesis 2:15).  You are placed in that family to be God’s representative as a lover and a builder.  Nothing ever stands out until it is built up by someone.

God saw a need in man’s life and He created a helpmeet, a woman, a wife.  “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” (Genesis 2:18).  The woman God created and brought to Adam was to compliment him through love and to build together with him.  Marriage is a man and woman called by God to build a glorious home and destiny together.  We all are called by God to be true lovers and builders.

Beloved, know your roles and responsibilities as a husband or a wife in the home.  Be available and responsible to rise to the call and task of loving and building.

Prayer focus: Oh God, give me the grace and wisdom to be a true lover and a faithful builder in my home and family in Jesus name.
