Wise Words For You In Selecting Your Marriage Partner (Part II)

Here Are Other Quotes and Verses That Could Help Us In Selecting Our Mate:

"You are not looking for someone who might be voted "Mate of the Year" by the general public or by your friends.You need to choose someone with personality you can live with and enjoy." -from the Book "Finding The Love Of Your Life "

"But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”"- 1 Samuel 16:7 

-Although this passage was about the words of the Lord to Samuel when he was to anoint a new king for Israel, we can also consider this verse in choosing a mate for us.Sometimes, we tend to look at the physical appearance of a person only and not really focus on the heart. Yes, physical appearance matters but in choosing a mate, you just don't consider the physical appearance per should be the "whole package"---spiritually, mentally, emotionally, socially..every aspect.

"Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God."-Proverbs 31:30 The Message Translation

"Charm and grace are deceptive, and beauty is vain [because it is not lasting], but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!" -Proverbs 31:30 Amplified Bible
