Getting the Will of God Too Easily

Sharing Options

“A young suitor has absolutely no business telling a young lady that he has ‘prayed about it,’ and that the Lord wants her to marry him. He should be acting on what he believes to be the will of God for him; the will of God is not a ‘club’ to be used on her. The man should be telling her what he would like to do, and what, Lord willing he will do. He must not tell her what God told her to do. It is a cowardly way to place the burden on the woman, and in addition James [Jas. 4:13-16] identifies all such presumption as evil” (Her Hand in Marriage, p. 42).
