sermon on the mount --marriage

It was also said, whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce. But I say to you...”

It is more than ironic that every day we hear in the news of another state, another country that is legalizing same sex marriage, while traditional marriage is quickly becoming obsolete.

Weddings have become amazing extravaganzas. But marriage itself just sort of unnecessarily complicates things.

A good friend at work married her live-in boyfriend of 20 years. Within days, this relationship began to disintegrate. “He's become really weird,” said my friend. “He insists on knowing where I go when I take off at night. Suddenly he wants to know things that are really none of his business.”

So why are gay people so enthusiastic about marriage?

Because if you want to live the good life, marriage is all about everything good: commitment, faithfulness, companionship, kindness, selflessness, protection, comfort, even love!

But marriage is so inconvenient. You just can't do whatever you want whenever you want to do it. And sometimes your spouse really hurts your feelings.

Marriage is all about the other person.

The Lord Jesus said, “He who loses his life for My sake, will find it.”
