DCLM Daily Manna 1 July, 2018 by Pastor Kumuyi – Arranged Marriage

Topic: Arranged Marriage [DCLM Daily Manna Sunday July 1, 2018]

Text: Genesis 24:61-67 (KJV)

Key Verse: “And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she lighted off the camel” (Genesis 24:64).


Marriages were arranged by parents in ancient days because it is assumed they know better than their children in deciding the best partner for them. This act is still common in many parts of the world where women are not allowed to express their own preferences for marriage partner.

In our text, Isaac left the task of choosing a wife into the hands of his father, who in turn committed the project into the hands of Eleazer, his servant. After much prayers, Abraham believed God would send an angel to lead Eleazer and aid him in the selection of a good wife. Everything apparently worked out well for Eleazer. Soon, Rebekah was on her way to Isaac. But she hadn’t seen him until she got to the outskirt of the town.

Though Abraham and the servant prayed for guidance before selecting a good wife which is akin to praying to know God’s will in marriage, it is unwise for a sister in Christ to commit to marring someone she hasn’t even seen before or know his spiritual convictions and goals in life.

A successful marriage is one laced with prayer and dependence on God for guidance. Believers should not marry unbelievers (Deuteronomy 7:3,4). Time should be set apart for courtship where intending couples trash out sensitive matters that could jeopardise their marriage. Meanwhile, parents should not insist on choosing life partners for their children but allow them pray to know God’s will. Even so, it must be done in pursuit of God’s glory alone.

Thought For The Day: A marriage made in heaven is better than one made by parents.
