“Choosing Life’s Mate”
Text: Genesis 29:9-20
The choice of a life’s mate is sacred. Outside of the supreme choice of choosing Christ as your Savior and pattern of life, the choosing of a mate stands at the head of the list of choices in importance. Deep thought, careful consideration of all the factors involved, and much prayer, are necessary if happiness is to be your experience.
A certain man was approached by another and was asked to give the secret of his beautiful home life. The man’s reply was: “I had a friend.”
If we would be able to give such a testimony, what are the qualities that a young girl must possess if she would become an ideal mate? What characteristics should a young man possess in order to qualify as a desired mate? What are the factors both parties should consider in this supreme choice of life?
Body of Sermon:
