6 (Really Important) Reasons to Rethink Divorce
Although among Christians, marriage is considered to be a sacred institution that was both created and ordained by God himself (Genesis 2:24-25), there are many published reports which indicate that there is about as much divorce happening within the church as out.
It’s an article within itself why this may be the case: a lack of thorough premarital counseling (Proverbs 24:6), not enough marriage groups and safe places to share after marriage, frustrations with having a “fairy tale perspective” of what marriage is really about rather than embracing the fact that since God’s love was about sacrifice (John 3:16), so should our own; especially when it comes to our spouse. The list goes on.
The Message Version of Luke 6:26 tells us that our task in life is to be true; not popular. And so, just because divorce is just about as common as boyfriends and girlfriends breaking up with one another, that doesn’t make it a truth-based decision. Let’s take a look at how much more serious the constitution of marriage is. Including six really important reasons to rethink divorce.
