Proverbs 18:22 – It’s elementary: A wife is a woman!

wife and husbandMy first reaction after reading Proverbs 18:22 is to wonder how the liberal, agnostic, so-called “progressive” and inclusive church would interpret this verse.  It is nigh unfathomable that in my amplification of this verse I have to make a point of stating that a “wife” is a female!  How foolish and sinful American society has become!

LET IT BE SHOUTED FROM THE HIGHEST PLACES AND DECLARED UNAPOLOGETICALLY THAT GOD CREATED HUSBAND AND WIFE MALE AND FEMALE—PERIOD!male and female

Proverbs 18:22 – “Whoso findeth [attain; find favor; get] a wife [female; woman] findeth [attain; find favor; get] a good [pleasing; pleasant; delightful] thing, and obtaineth [secure; draw out; elicit] favour [pleasure; desire; goodwill; acceptance] of the LORD [Jehovah; Eternal, Self-Existent God].”

To find a wife, obtain her love and win her favor is not only a good, pleasant and delightful thing; it is an expression of God’s divine grace and favor to a man.  God in His infinite wisdom and matchless plan knew Adam, the first man, would need a “helpmeet” (Genesis 2:20).  Eve was the perfect complement to her husband and his confidant.good thing

When a man finds a woman whom he loves in word and cherishes in his actions…he has procured God’s best!
