In Bible college, I began dating a fellow. During our first month of dating, we decided we should study the Bible together. With my plot well set, one night I opened my Bible to (Proverbs 18:22) and read, "He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord." I looked up, winked, and said, "Couldn't you use a little favor from the Lord?" My boyfriend, a Bible scholar, was quick with his reply from (Proverbs 10:10)--"He who winks the eye causes trouble."
