The D Word
Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man, He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. Then Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she will be called Woman, for she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and be joined to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
– Genesis 2:22-24
Throughout Scripture, God gave many instructions about marriage. He places a
very high priority on how we form our families and how we behave after our
families are formed. It doesn’t end at the altar. That is just the beginning.
God created marriage and family for your pleasure. It’s not hard to live right
when you have a beautiful family, a loving family, a family rooted and
grounded in God’s love and love for one another, as God desires.
Joni and I said on our wedding night that the D word, divorce, would never be
mentioned among us or in our home, and we have kept that promise to one
another. God’s love and our love for one another is what joined us, and it is
what keeps us together.
Lord, renew our covenant today!
