For Christians, marriage is a beautiful and life changing event. If you are planning to get married to your soulmate, you may wish to present them with a gift to cherish. One of the symbols of marriage that the both of you will wear are your wedding rings. To give your future spouse a special gift, consider engraving a beautiful biblical quote on the symbol of your everlasting love. Here are some ideas for engravings for the wedding ring that you will wear forever.
Proverbs 31: The Wife of Noble Character
For a beautiful bride, the Bible makes it clear that the Proverbs 31 woman is the aspiration for a virtuous woman and wife. If you want to remind your wife how you feel about her and provide her with inspiration on being a Christian wife, inscribe some of the Proverbs 31 versus from 10-31. You may also elect to have just the verse numbers engraved, or you may select terms from the scriptures that best applies to your future wife.
Ephesians 5:23: The Husband is to the Wife as Christ is to the Church
The bible sets up the order of the household and makes the husband the household authority figure. Husbands are told to love their wives, and wives are told to submit to their husbands. To remind one another of the love, honor, and cherish that God expects you to offer one another, the Ephesians verse is a great inscription for both Christian rings.
Genesis 2:23-24: The Beginning of Men and Women
Flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone is how man and woman came about. In Genesis, the Bible describes God sending Adam into a deep sleep and creating Eve from one of his ribs. The Genesis verses are the first connections that God gave to men and women, as one sex was taken from another to be a helpmate. To remind yourselves of God's plan for you as a couple from the very beginning of human creation inscribe the Genesis versus into your wedding rings.
Mark 10:9: The Everlasting Marital Promise
A Christian marriage is considered a covenant before God. Marriages before Christ are to last until death do you part. As a daily reminder of the lifetime that you will enjoy together, place Mark 10:9 on your rings, which tells you "what God has put together, let no man put asunder". Through grace, you and your spouse can lean on your faith to help you get through tough times and achieve a loving marriage that glorifies your higher power.
