Not Two, But One

WS-devo_PMSSome Pharisees came to Jesus and tried to trick him. They asked, “Is it right for a man to divorce his wife?” Jesus answered, “What did Moses command you to do?”

They said, “Moses allowed a man to write out divorce papers and send her away.”

Jesus said, “Moses wrote that command for you because you were stubborn. But when God made the world, ‘he made them male and female.’ ‘So a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two will become one body.’

So there are not two, but one. God has joined the two together, so no one should separate them.” (Mark 10:2-9 NCV)

Reducing divorce to a legal or moral issue misses the point and purpose of marriage. Regardless of opinion, God designed marriage with a purpose—to create a relational union as a means of replenishing the earth with godly offspring. A union that reflects Him—"not two, but one"—a relational partnership and commitment of two souls as one. ©Word-Strong_2014
