and suffering authority to follow God 's way and on my way and how to do relationships but because of God 's grace and through his mercy he finally help me to make the right decisions in the Michael

happiness while life on misery they believe that below this line they does any sane man man this is what I believe is important if on the principles of the women got positions look at what do I look for this morning so does my reader in a public meeting to consider in a spouse before you make a decision to get married and we discovered these principles of love the weather got together May God 's very impress on lines that you for this time that is for fathers and what is open we do but humbly kneeling a minute before the foot of the cross we see a great love for us this morning Macedonia Holy Spirit to teach us to guide us in thanking Jesus thing in what don't people normally look for in a spouse percentage up to sixty percent in the Bible says the Lord set of design look not on his confidence on the height of his stature because I have refused him for the Lord sees not as man sees the man looks on the outward one appearance the Lord look at on the way on the heart you people are not attracted to other people in relationships on the outward appearance of person what God is that he looks at all sides great insight character of a personal pool that person really is the hobgoblin that a person who enough to look at that shopping beauty on the outside characters is a personality that's what we not look as bad amount of her three years for several young people about I have created describing the type of person you have married him a happy d-limonene of this out there maybe when you want when you are denying a couple woman you want to marry and then we made a list you you brought a dollar you have friends who will attend this is due on things on the list Ms. Liz sometimes they only list on the one she must be creating beautiful good-looking you must have a nice healthy body she must dress fashionable in style as young people she must be popular she must be fun to be with she must be educated and then women make their lives also and they make is if you must be good-looking he must drive in Hawaii a big shock he must be in shape he must be funny they must be popular you must have a lot of money Anglican these lists are presented to you you see the main emphasis is on the outward appearances of a person and the reality is that the outward appearances lactose substance for sustain a strong and healthy mess married today especially in today's sinful world these are what addresses is not strong enough to hold it together you see God knows what it takes to make a relationship work in this world of sin what makes it work is when a person is on the inside mother one person is on the outside you see lots will fade nice bodies were age popularity with the dear author for humor may become stale a good job may become discouraging fancy cars and fancy clothes wasn't a later domicile but a person 's character withstand the test of time and will be a deciding factor when met with an marriage would make it whether it will fail not money unlocks my character on the inside who a person is on the inside matters and when a person is on the outside so this morning if you already have a list this morning my hope today that happened to serving you connect me by your list this morning and online it would want God saves his most important and audibly relationship to work and by determining to Genesis chapter twenty four this morning Genesis chapter twenty four verse thirteen to fourteen note a look at areas are anyway as I went to find a perfect match for his master Abraham 's son Isaac to what you look for Genesis chapter twenty five or thirteen and fourteen what qualities it is on these lists in order to find the perfect wife I think this is the twenty four birth thirteen and fourteen the Bible says this is what he finds he can find on it this is one of the women I'm looking for the vilest and thirteen behold I sent here by the will of water and the daughters of the men of the city to draw water and then it come to pass that the dance at the moment so saying that down your picture I pray you that any drink and she does a drink and I will give you countless drink also that the same be she that hath that now has appointed for your servant Isaac and I saw a low menu has shown kindness unto my master and the asked for a sign from God he said and is assigning asked if he was going to ask this woman at the wealth would take a lot any woman acting by and just as sure as you go alone and without a pigeon to the wound bring it out and given to him to drink and then noticed this and gone beyond what was asked as they let me also not asking each even asked him but it is usable beyond is a limit on the uninstall water for your camels also and I do want to fall his camels that he said this was the past to determine if this was the person for Isaac on the city qualifying test in finding the right woman for Isaac was a character test on the inside rather than an appearance past on the also end up and listen any other had it be something like this she must be thoughtful inside she must be kind she must be a hard worker she must be practical she must be unselfish she must go beyond what is fast she must be a virtuous godly woman many met this woman needs a backup versus sixteen twenty one and he has admitted his women what happened how they react to the situation as a toy for the sixteen to twenty one the balances in the downhill is very fair to look upon all virgin neither had any man known her as he went down to the wound to the picture and came up and the Senate and ran to meet her and said that we afraid to think that a lot of your picture by picture and she said drink my Lord and she thinks it is the most we can go slowly with you more quickly and Lebanon the picture upon her hand and gave him drink and when she had done in hindrances and onto all Waterford account was also until you have done drinking and she hates that you will quickly and emptied her picture into the trough and run again and ran again and again and ran again onto the well to draw water and beautiful on his camels and the men wondering over one days at her palette is being his visa was speechless below was speechless when whether the Lord had made a journey prosperous or not the buzz of the Rebecca hastily grabbed one of an important one of quickly was a hard-working fast practical hard worker and then went beyond what was asked well you been asked or told what to delete with VI was asked and then it and apologize you will quickly and there is no water ran black man Ashgabat is a rental purpose when he was a godly woman practical kind thoughtful unsalted one beyond what is that about just one in here was a woman that he was somewhat slow that he went beyond all human expectations some as under the bylaws of the any hassle I wonder in amazement and was speechless as he watched this woman work at the well he just couldn't believe it that way before his burial my thinking was a practical hard-working thoughtful kind unsolved this torturous woman after sightseeing and so many process unlocking and saw many churches after hunting on so many Christian top of blankets so many Christian seminars he had followed me finally found a woman ungodly burqas women up practical hard-working unselfish woman he couldn't believe his larger body found on burqas woman sides as this woman speaks let amazed in wonder numbers is when is important but what does the Bible say about finding a purchase will return me to publish up to thirty one percent Congress chapter thirty one this is the purchase woman chapter chapter thirty one verse ten what does the Bible is about finding emerges when the Bala says who can define a virtuous woman for her price is far above rubies the question is asked who can find a versus woman with a policy saying is that it is almost impossible to find a virtuous woman which is as valuable and rare as like precious stones not a Texan about it says on that out of a thousand you can find by the woman cannot find who can find America's woman I budget me the whole chapter thirty one this chapter list the characteristics of one of virtuous person is seen and what type of person to marry but for now let's look at only one principle here from this chapter tend to verses thirteen to sixteen pilots at the thirty one versus fifty six to sixty what the birth his woman doing her hands the bottle says DC can rule out glass and work your way warily in Ohio with her hands she is like the merchant ships she bring in a full informal floor she rise also while it is yet night and gives food to the household and a plastic of the meetings she considers a field and buys it with the food of her hands she planted of being your she is not idle she is not lazy she is not sluggish she is industrious she is useful she is working she is practical I find that is unfortunate today below that museum and an eight and is very unwilling to work and also become becoming very impractical today I find it very disturbing to me to see on this visiting young people going up today having no sense of accountability all hardware and I can't blame as much of the blame ourselves because where do they get that phone again it from us as parents we love this morning we live in a age was becoming very impractical in a today I appreciate for the most part the modern conveniences conveniences that it and the conveniences and time saving capabilities off my laptop computer I love it I love what he can do in life for example when I create my sermons on my laptop I can go into moguls and I could do word studies and I can find Texan looking for make a look into the reason for Hebrew and original Greek was seven and prepare all that and then if I want to go further I can go on to the writings of Ellen the one thing that one by linking biology of the famous of the topic they think they can ignore to what the Reformation leaders said a bus of the topic and want another arrogant angle of final text commentary I noted SP Bible commentary and people get involved are just on my laptop computer inside praise God for modern technology today I appreciate what computers can do today and save things on so much time today nosing today is a disturbing trend a very disturbing trend a trend up in practicality I'm seeing a newer generation putting myself today then able to use modern technology and electronic gadgets but is unable to both line everyday practical work that needs to be done young people today know how to fix a software problem on the computer but I don't know how to fix a flat tire when it's stuck on the side of the road at midnight when a cell phone doesn't work young people today know how to drive a race car on the videogame but they don't really know how to drive stick shift or car although have the life is within the twenty young people getting on the beautiful webpages on the Internet was unable even know how to make a simple meal and a friend that works at the Salvation Army 's boys home in Hilo and he was telling me that is one Peter 's demand promise was given out to it in fact talking was fighting him and he realized what had happened is asking him to make SKUs me but does not seem to make time and cheese sandwich and he was rebelling him he had to because they didn't know how to make that happen and achieve always a very long sixty hello they do not know how to make a meal unit on the Hanukkah hound and cheese guys know when this is an extreme but the principle is there all young people losing the practicality of life simple grad had cheese bread this is a trend of many of our young people today and this is the type of person you want to marry just because he makes you feel good others because she's the only one that you understand you and at the same venue going by determined up to one year to be needed for the rest of your life makes me feel so good after the gondola unless absolutely when it understands he says that he is going to provide for you for the rest of your life and he doesn't drive anything in the catheter I just received she says that you take care of you I think I'm even know how to make rice in a rice cooker is it every time he tries to stuff the book and I I'm a good friend was in his twenties and new twenties and he says that after you know every job that I've been to every job into one some type of alloy everything the dominant images that did that come deleted to myself basically worthless really appreciate the work is such a great work please don't leave an exotic beauty with an award everywhere he goes a similar meaning Tassajara do anything I just show up to work and do my job and when you think of is that the work not there my father is small bad not aiming this shawl and doing a job the Army considered a great work I don't want to lose by natural event and I'm not too bad today show off anyway and I realized that I have met again at the end is jointly working domains at once opposed to believe that the Contessa has come to a point that interview is a commission believed and to strive to be like Christ and Christ was prepping in any Krasny workmanship he did perfect and you strive for that intuiting must be the need to all that you let us stand out very strongly no matter what job do it right today very strong and people in the evening on strife I used doing a job and you show up you'd understand any as I was last because he found a woman not only was willing to do was supposed to be offered is getting a drink when she went being gone what was that you'll find out today nineties union union right and in the union out there I know people to say that union jobs like this is a union job to get a union job and you working clock entry in your working copy cheap are you doing framing but I was framing can I do on calendar the mason work because even if it were to happen in the fire you know that the file you eat anything about this pizza got the worker 's job but another person job the job rubbish else like it in a union mentality and is into the home life my job is his job in inventory and get into the church like a family jobs job as an entirety with inspiration power message and not enter into to enter the today of my job and do it you have to do it on alcohol sweating blood sweat and tears and on the job is an attitude a union has come into all holes and into our churches but he was a refreshing thing is I was amazed he wondered he was speechless why because he was somebody who went against the fulfillment of time more quickly from able was a hard worker someone with unsalted and I went beyond what was asked of a wound often ugly woman you'll find within the womb anymore today you'll find a couple when you find a company to go above and beyond what is asked to go beyond with you ask or think nothing about how crisis when they receive the gospel especially when you realize the goggles above and beyond what you ask what they can do appreciate that then you will go above and beyond what anyone else capacity for development is a response to the gospel of Jesus Christ to meet you chapter one verse eight booth chapter one method Joshua Judges and then move chapter one missing that take a look at a Bible added to love story I love this story is among my favorite stories is not the favorite my favorite story is under the love story of Boaz and Ruth Ruth set the longest eight to ten you see the story goes where Naomi was unusual she left and she ran for the husband because there was a famine of the policy so they went down to Moab and while she was down in Moab she had her to sign Seattle to spend with her and invited on Moab her husband dies passes away hot dog in the husband I press sons married to want by

to the family that I have finally returned to her own home is the Ark was a good person she was a fine person with a good character but roots thoughtful unselfish love shine so much stronger than on is overshadowed in this story means virtue faithfulness and loyalty is on the more amazing when we call was happening it easy to bug people who was the book of Judges and in a book of Judges is characterized by infidelity disobedience idolatry apostasy and general waywardness and then went after the book of Judges is the book are through with it like an old always is in the middle of the desert is refreshing to see unselfish love to review into a once in a notice that on the game a show of commitment but move to the substance of the unit difference on the case Naomi Audra showed affection to the only Arthur says she loved I I know but it was ruled that has to give the sauce is already and clung to Naomi Y Anspach went back to become is wanting to get a shortcoming in the show of affection but it's quite another to have the substance they are into the blood there are many people like Aqua today they give a show commitment to you in relationship vacationing in a show of love believing tissue within their turn right around and there hurt you behind your back we need to his men and women like Ruth who not only show affection within the sciences of affection by Spain and cleaning with you till death do you part a net they also many today the light on a new relationship ago it's a thought I love you not issuing the affections of God they even kiss God they praise God
