Who or what defines marriage? The rioting occurring in
A marriage between a man and woman in the
Sadly we live in times where the union of marriage begins the race of accumulation and not devotion to God.
Today as I visited with a friend she noticed that I do not have a wedding ring on. She asked where my ring was, and I briefly explained that I wore my wedding set on a necklace when pregnant with my third son as my fingers would swell. I even wore Bill’s wedding band as he was in the Army and preferred not to have it on while on duty. I went into labor early and went to the hospital without grabbing the rings on the necklace. I left the necklace on my bedpost.
We had our neighbors teen daughters sit with the other two boys, and when I came home, I noticed the rings were gone. As we had no proof that they took the rings~ we chose not accuse anyone, as the rings did not make us married. As I spoke this aloud I realized how very true this is. So many women desire an expensive diamond ring, and then the marriage ends in a few years. Rings most definitely do not make the marriage.
God made marriage. Through God we can maintain the marriage. That is why I have never needed a replacement set…
Whether our nation changes what marriage means or not will not nullify what God did. Man is funny thinking that if he squeezes his eyes closed long enough that God will disappear…no He will not. God created this world and all that is in it, regardless of what any of us believe.
So I will not battle against man and his hate of God, when marriage is redefined. Nope I will not. I will instead continue to glorify God by honoring my marriage and the vow I made before God. I will be an example of what a marriage can be like when one does this.
