First Corinthians contains some pretty deep stuff. It seems that there is so much inside these chapters that a majority of the Christian community does not adhere to. The verses today are no exception.
To the married I give this charge (not I, but the Lord): the wife should not separate from her husband (but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband), and the husband should not divorce his wife.
1 Corinthians 7:10-11
This is not my ideal for marriage, it isn’t even Paul’s ideal. This one man and one woman for life ideal for marriage comes from the Lord.
Divorce is such a common thing now. It used to be something that was rare, and looked down upon. This is becoming very common with so much that the Bible calls sin- once seen as sin and now paraded about like a medal.
Marriage was made for life.
No for better, or for richer, or for most attractive.
Marriage is sacred and God-given.
Scripture gives us one reason to divorce:
But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
Heavenly Father, please be with those who do not honor Your Will. Things are so upside down in our world right now. Help me walk with You, even when it is tough, lonely, and hard to see the good. Thank you for Christ, who shows us the way. Amen.
