Sunday Poem: Trust in Marriage

Marriage built on trust

Reliable as life vest

Not home at midnight

Work phone continues to ring

Recorded message on cell

***

 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” – Genesis 2:24 (KJV)

“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.  She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.” – Psalm 31:10-12

“Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.” – 1 Corinthians 7:3

 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;” – Ephesians 5:25
