March 20

Ezra 10:44
All these had married foreign women and some of them had children by these wives.

This weekend I had 6 teenagers at my house for our Discipleship Weekend. We had an awesome time and then came the time when they ask me "questions". My main goal is to always point them to Jesus and see how He would answer their questions. I was of course asked about interracial marriages. This was one of the scriptures that came to mind.

The concern for these women being foreign was not because of their color but because of them having false god and being an unholy race. They did not worship the one true God. This is what we must teach our children. The most important factor when looking for a mate is to make sure they are a Christian, not just somebody that is a member of a church, but one who professes Jesus as their Lord and Savior! I have seen many women who thought they could change the person they married, but lived many many years in misery. Let's help our children to learn not to start a marriage off that would not be pleasing to God. Pray now that God will place that special person in their life, and even beyond that, pray that our children will seek God to find that mate that He has in store for them.
