|NASB||Proverbs 18:22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing
And obtains favor from the LORD.
|Proverbs 18:22 He who finds a [true and faithful] wife finds a good thing
And obtains favor and approval from the LORD. [Prov 19:14; 31:10]
|Bible Question (short): Does "find" assume the man is "looking?"|
Question (full): Does the word "find" in this verse assume that the man is actively "looking" for a wife? I am finding that many churches in my area are teaching that it is wrong to seek out a Christian mate and that one should completely focus on the Lord and He will "send" a mate to you if that is His will. Assuming that Christians would conduct themselves according to the Bible and with prayer, is it against God's will for us to seek a Christian mate?
