Marriage is one of God’s greatest gifts because it’s not good for a person to be alone. But sadly, about 50% of all marriages end in divorce.
On this topic, Jesus essentially said in Matthew 5:31-32, “You have heard it said that divorce isn’t a big deal, but I’m here to tell you it is a huge deal.”
Of course, Jesus is right. Divorce doesn’t just wreck a marriage and a family. It destroys a community. Communities with higher levels of divorce have higher levels of crime, imprisonment, child abuse, poverty, school dropouts, and teen births.
Beloved, want to see our community change for the better? Do this one simple thing: marry your child’s parent and stay married to them until the day one of you dies. Sound old-fashioned? Maybe it is. But more importantly, it’s biblical and blessed.
Change begins in you!
