In Matt 19:1-12 Jesus speaks of a wonderful union that comes from God. What we see today or even a couple of thousand years ago is not how it was in the beginning. The wonderful thing of a man & woman being joined together & becoming one reflects a spiritual, physical & biological union that has been a blessing to humanity that has spanned the centuries.
From the blessing of marriage & the order that is displayed in the male & female relationship men & women live in love & children are born & nurtured. This is the intended purpose of marriage in the Christian family, the harmonious bond of God in nature. When the warmth fades, love grows cold & the nest not so desirable, it would be wise to examine our hearts in the light of God’s Word. In God alone do we find bearing & direction as we experience the storms of life & the winds of change.[Psalm 90]
