Three purposes of Marriage in the Beginning-Part 1

July 26, 2015

(Gen 2:24) says “Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother and shall cleave unto his own wife: and they shall be one flesh.

From the beginning of time God expected at least three things to happen in every marriage:
The first thing is that a man would leave his father and mother: This implies that he would leave the parent’s behind and the family he grew up in to take a woman’s hand in marriage and publicly declare his love and union with another. When a husband and wife have made such a declaration, they have a greater reason to give themselves to building a committed relationship one with another. This also means that they don’t run to mommy and daddy every time they have an issue. What it should mean is that they both run to God or to someone who has an intimate relationship with God…such as their pastor or spiritual advisor to help them see God’s vision for their marriage. There is no shame in asking if you really don’t know. The only shame is seeing a marriage on life support, or worst, divorce because neither spouse sought out help. Now that’s a darn shame.

God Bless You
