What God has joined, let not man seperate

Friday October 13th, Mark 10: 2 Some Pharisees came and tested him by asking, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?" 3 "What did Moses command you?" he replied. 4 They said, "Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce and send her away." 5 "It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law," Jesus replied. 6 "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' 7 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8 and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." In the male dominated society, divorce was too easy. It was more a matter of disposing property you no longer wanted than it was the breaking of relationships. Breaking relationships is, as it should be, painful. Today we are flooded as a society with the consequences of breaking relationships with one another, but are we aware of the pain involved in breaking our relationship with Christ? In the suburban world in which most in this congregation live there are activities upon activities for our children. Does church, does prayer in the home, does our spiritual connection play a significant part in those activities? Make your families life one in which you go through life hand in hand with God, don’t let God become one more activity you get to once in a while.
