We have established from Proverbs 18:22 that a wife is not a human being but a THING. This thing is precious that it activates favor from the Lord. What makes it precious is the fact that a man must FIND it. That means its hidden and requires a map, a skill, a mental picture, dedication and discipline to find it. I want to compare this THING with a precious stone called DIAMOND.
The formation of natural diamond requires very specific conditions—exposure of carbon-bearing materials to high pressure, ranging approximately between 45 and 60 kilobars, but at a comparatively low temperature range between approximately 900 and 1,300 °C. These conditions are met in two places on Earth; in the lithospheric mantle below relatively stable continental plates, and at the site of a meteorite strike.
Thats a little technical but the keywords to bring our MINDS on are PRESSURE and TEMPERATURE! I used to think diamonds just appear but the truth is; something builds them. What is building you to become that WIFE before a man shows up? Did you die with the Pressures and Temperatures of life or it has refined you?
What then is a wife? It is a virtue developed not by reading romantic novels and fiction, watching telenovela all day, performing surgeries on her body in salon theatres but by how far she has developed herself in secret,dedicating her Mind to the precepts and principles of being a HELP MEET for a Man who has found his earthly assignment and helping him accomplish it while accomplishing hers in the final outcome to glorify God.
It is a thing that is developed with pressure and temperature as a function of time. The value placed on her is correlated to the size of the thing within her built with time. We dont pick diamonds anywhere, we dig them. That requires investment. So tell me why then should a diamond worry when it has not been dug out? Must the diamond dig itself out and begin to chase the invester? No! The more sophisticated machines we bring to the site of digging due to depths the higher the value placed on the diamond. Boys pick marbles and men dig diamonds. The choice is yours. YouSeeYourFace?
