He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.
1. A wife is a rare gift - God helped the husband to search and find her successfully.
2. A wife is a good gift - God has entrusted the wife to her husband for safe keeping.
3. A wife is a gracious gift - God has given the husband a gift he does not deserve.
Since all of this true, the husband should value the wife as a rare, good and gracious gift from the Lord. The wife should aspire to be outside what she is already inside. She must pray and work to be that rare, good and gracious gift to her husband.
And for those who are single here is the wonderful news: you are already married. All who trust in Jesus are the bride of Christ in this passage. You are the rare, good and gracious gift given by God to His Son, our Husband, the Lord Jesus. You are the pearl of great price! A day is coming when you shall attend your wedding feast in Heaven!
