Matthew 5: 31 “Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.
On first read, these verses look like they are about marital breakup. Yes, they are. And they are about more than that. They are about commitment. Connecting with Jesus is about connecting with commitment. This is the man, who sought out Peter after being horribly betrayed. This is the God, who found over 500 after going through a beating and violent death with less than five at the bottom of the cross. This is the friend, who will never leave us or forsake us.
What challenge does that give us in relationships?
ACT! Take time to invest in a relationship. Build instead of break. Boost instead of loose.
PRAY! Father, my hope is in You. Always, we are challenged to keep active our relationships. Teach us to manage the few You give to us. You manage millions of relationships. Teach us to stay faithful as You stay faithful.. Thank You for being the One that is faithful even when we are not. We need that.
