RAP SHEET 6/9/24

Series: Stupid In Love

Sermon: Happily Ever... After

Scripture: Genesis 24


REVIEW:

This week, we continued our series "Stupid In Love" by addressing marriage and the realities that come with it. While marriage is meant to be a joyful and fulfilling relationship, statistics show many marriages fail due to a lack of understanding and preparation. We examined the story of finding Isaac's wife and explored the importance of building a marriage on a common purpose, compatibility, and confirmation from wise counsel. Isaac had an essential purpose, and he needed to find a wife to help him carry that out. You also have a great purpose from God, which also makes your relationships critical!


Key Points:

1. Common Purpose: Marriages thrive when partners share a common life purpose centered around their faith and values (Genesis 24:1-9).

2. Compatibility: True compatibility goes beyond chemistry. It involves understanding and addressing potential conflicts before they become destructive (Genesis 24:10-19).

3. Confirmation: Seeking confirmation from wise and godly individuals can safeguard a marriage by ensuring both partners are on the right track (Genesis 24:32-51).


APPLY:

If You Are Single:

- Reflect on your life purpose and what you aim to achieve. How can you ensure your future partner shares this purpose?

- Take the time to understand your compatibility with potential partners. Are there areas of conflict that need to be addressed?

- Are you open to honest feedback from wise individuals before making significant relationship decisions? Why or why not?


If You Are Married:

- Discuss the common purpose of your marriage with your spouse. Are there areas where you need to align more closely?

- What are some areas of incompatibility you have found throughout your marriage? What steps have you (or do you need to) take to address them?


PRAY:

Ask God to help you build a marriage based on a common purpose, compatibility, and wise confirmation. Pray for the strength to address conflicts and align your relationship with His will.
