How valuable is your woman?


You My Love 1 Samuel 18:25 And Saul said, Thus shall you say to David, The king desires not any dowry, but a hundred foreskin of the Philistines, to be avenged of the king’s enemies. But Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines. 26 And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king’s son-in-law: and the days were not expired. 27 Therefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave the full number of them to the king, that he might be the king’s son-in-law. And Saul gave him Michal his daughter to wife. Do you remember how important your spouse/wife was to you when you first fell in love with her and desired to marry her? Some men still have to pay the price of asking the father of the bride for permission to marry the daughter, ilobola which is an honorable experience in my culture. Whatever the price put on the woman, she is worthy much more than silver and gold. But is it really a price? Most men would risk their lives to win and gain the one that they love. It’s no really price cause I am yet find a woman worthy the value of any price tag put on them, they are much more valuable than what society thinks. Think back on what it was like before you were married, and how you longed to be with your love. What price you have paid then? She was the most valuable thing in the world to you, not because of the price tag put on her. He was the most precious thing you could think of. But each day as you rise up and start the day, do you still feel the same? Each day, as you go through the problems of life and face difficulties, do you still think this? Or do you simply take for granted that you have someone who spends their life with you? What if your spouse were made a better offer than what you are? What if another woman offers herself to your husband in your place? What if another man were to offer himself to your wife in your place? What would you do? Would you consider your spouse valuable enough to fight for, and give up all for? Would you be ready to pay any price to keep them? And then as you look at yourself, would you consider yourself valuable enough to your spouse that you would never need to be afraid of this? Are you sure that you are of such value that no other person could ever compete with you? Every day marriages come to an end because someone stopped realizing how valuable their spouse was. Marriages end because a husband or wife are no longer valuable to their partner. Perhaps if you were to think back on the price you would have gladly paid, or did pay to get your husband or wife, you will realize how precious they are to you. And then perhaps you will find yourself once again ready to risk your life for the one you love. Could you take in your hands the biggest price you could pay, and hold it out to him or her, saying, “For you my love. You are worth every bit of it.”
