Just a few simple verses today on Marriage. There is so much wisdom to be found in The Bible. God's word is so beautiful and informative. He gives us a set of rules to follow about getting married and also on marriage itself, and what he expects of us. Next week, I will share some verses about God's expectations of the husband / wife relationship (God's expectations of both men and women).
Luk 20:34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:
1Co 7:33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.
1Ti 5:14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
I read a post from Simply Vintageous by Suzan that was about a Pat Robertson radio show. I was appalled at Pat Robertson's comments to the women calling into his show. I believe that God has set guidelines for marriage, but I believe the The Bible was never meant to give men the idea that men just stray, and women should just put up with it. I also do not believe that God wants women to feel like it's all their fault, because they didn't dress pretty enough or have enough makeup or just be perfect in general. We are human beings with flaws, and God sees us how we are. To use The Bible as a soap box to allow men to wander outside a marriage truly gives new meaning to perverting the word.
Sorry, I did not mean for today's post to be a rant, but I love The Bible. It is so beautiful, and I get really upset when people try to change the meaning to suit themselves.
Have a blesses week.
