Why Divorce. . .?

Today's segment deals with an unfortunate reality, Divorce. Sorrowfully to say, divorce has been a very popular option when it involves some marriages.

There's really no right or wrong about divorce. It's just that it is a way of life sometimes we take in order to keep peace between two people. It is however, not a recommended way of life, although it is necessary in some cases where there is abuse etc.

The Bible teaches us that only because of the hardness of our hearts, were we given permission to divorce. Only cases of adultery at first.. Anything short of that is reconcilable.
Matthew 5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. Now why do you think Jesus worded that scripture like that? . . .and Jesus goes on further to say in chapter 19: He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

You see, the institution of marriage was originally designed by God you might note, to be a one time (til death do you part) permanent experience. We (mankind) are the ones who have made it " a revolving door". The ordination of the marital union was purposed to fulfill the happiness and contentment of both parties to the extent of actually inspiring others to do the same. Genesis 9:7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein. Not only was mankind to have dominion over the land and fields but to also build families. Subsequently, when Adam disobeyed God, he lost dominion as well as his perspective.
We've lost our perspectives when it comes to marriages, and our solutions all seem to spell divorce. This might shock you a little. . .All marriages should be first ordained by God! One might ask, well, what is ordained? It is God's approval by nature. Meaning God has placed an unconditional love in the heart of that man and that woman to choose to be married, FOREVER! They two then become ONE! Get it?. . . . .It's God's example to mankind of the plan of Salvation. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Husband and wife become one just as man can become one with the Father. POWERFUL STUFF EH?
Let's finalize today's message: Divorce is really defeat. There are other ways! If however, your marital relationship is abusive, it was wrong from the very beginning.(bad choice) Now keep in mind, that God doesn't hold you responsible for a mistake. He holds you accountable if you don't correct it, once you've found out. ( very important )

Heavenly Father, give us the understanding we need to see what's really wrong, then grant us the ability to accept your Word that ultimately brings the solutions. . . .is my prayer for you today!

Be Blessed.!
