When one is called the community is in a crisis. The crises cover all sorts of community problems. This week we’ll look at a timeless community crisis (just a few weeks before Valentine’s Day.)
Sometimes there is a single young man in our community who cannot find a wife. He’s educated, handsome, and likable; but for some reason he cannot find that special young woman. We worry a bit about him. We sense something is holding him back. We don’t know what to do.
Sometimes there is a single young woman in our community who cannot find a husband. She’s educated, beautiful, and socially gifted; but for some reason it seems the young men in our midst don’t see all she has to offer. We worry a bit about her. We wonder if we need to help a young man have the courage to ask her out on a date. We don’t know what to do.
The substance of life has not changed in thousands of years. Our human future depends on young men and women falling in love, marrying, and having children that fill our community with joy and hope.
Thousands of years ago, a called man named Abraham was looking at his son, Isaac with the same concerns. He called his servant to go find Isaac a wife. This week we’ll look at the call to be a matchmaker.
We need you bzee and respected wise women to guide our youth.
We need you young people to listen well. We believe in you. We trust the best for you. We believe the best of this earth is marriage.
We are called to be a matchmaker.
