Pastors Matt Chandler and David Platt are preaching that single men should search for a godly wife. Both pastors say that men in the Church are often waiting when they should be taking the initiative to find a wife.
David Platt said, "Resist the ever present trend and temptation in our day to prolong adolescence and consequence, singleness into twenties and thirties. Grow up. Some of you stop playing videogames and get a date."
Proverbs 18:22 teaches us, "He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD."
Platt has additional dating advice for men: "If she rejects you, then make that as easy as possible for her, humbly bow out and seek somewhere else."
Matt Chandler preaches that God created marriage after seeing that is was not good for Adam to be alone. God gave Adam a wife to help him fulfill the task God had for him.
