For Better or for Worse

In this picture Gretta Berry is feeding her husband Wayne.  Gretta is 92 and Wayne is 94.  This is exactly what Scripture means when It speaks of the wife being the helper of her husband.  In today’s society we don’t  often see this committment.  When God created husband and wife he said for this reason a man should leave father and mother and cleave to another and they should become flesh.

Marriage is intended to be one man and one woman for one lifetime.  It is easy to  forget the committment we make to each other.  When we marry we generally pledge we shall be together for better or for worse,  for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health so long as we both shall live.  This covers almost anything we can imagine.  We are committing to each other and to God a lifetime together.

God hates divorce.  We speak of terms like “innocent party” and “Scriptural divorce”.  These terms are not from Scripture.  These are terms man has invented.  These are not from God.  In a divorce there is always more than enough blame to be shared by all.  Divorce always contains sin.  What we often fail to understand is divorce isn’t a life sentence.  It can be forgiven, but there are still consequences  we all face.  Divorce hurts everyone it touches.  This is one of the many reasons God hates divorce.

We need to teach our children marriage is forever.  Those who are contemplating marriage  need to  choose wisely.   If we could only have one automobile in our lifetime we would choose an automobile that was an absolute fit.  We would choose wisely.  Should we do any less in marriage?  If we could instill in our children the truths of marriage they would understand marriage is always intended to be for better or for worse.
