Romans 12:2 (NET) Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test and approve what is the will of God – what is good and well-pleasing and perfect.
Uche was interested in marrying Agnes. He really loved her. But it was clear that his parents did not approve. His mother was not particularly excited about her. He also observed that his brethren in the church didn’t seem happy with their relationship.
Because he was determined to marry Agnes, he didn’t want to find out the reason why all the people around him who cared for him did not find Agnes acceptable. He decided to go ahead with the wedding plans, but his mother insisted that she was not going to attend the wedding. Meanwhile, she was making inquiries about Agnes.
Unknown to Uche, his beloved had been married before and even has a son, but she didn’t tell him. She was not a believer, but only pretending to be one. She knew that if she could get Uche to marry her, she would trap him and it would be hard for someone like him to divorce.
Even though Agnes was well-pleasing to Uche, she was not well-pleasing to his brethren and to his God-fearing parents. It is important that we consider our brethren to whom we are accountable when deciding who to marry. Because you are the one involved, and because of emotions, you may not be objective enough in your judgments, but when all the people around you who fear the Lord seem to have issues with a particular decision you want to make, wisdom demands that you put a break to it till the issues are sorted out.
