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.
