Then Isaac called Jacob and blessed him and directed him, “You must not take a wife from the Canaanite women. Arise, go to Paddan-aram to the house of Bethuel your mother’s father, and take as your wife from there one of the daughters of Laban your mother’s brother. God Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may become a company of peoples. May he give the blessing of Abraham to you and to your offspring with you
Whom you choose to live your life with matters. Marriage is not intended to be an experiment we “hope works out.” You have got to KNOW the one you’re marrying and be 100% confident come what may you will put Jesus first. Isaac didn’t want Jacob to marry someone who didn’t worship Jehovah God. That’s still a good policy today.
