The best way to keep your family together
July 21, 2011
“So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
I saw awhile back whereTime magazine did a study on the family. And in particular, they were looking at the effect of divorce and the broken home on children. The writer of the article concluded that close to 50 percent of children from divided families go into adulthood as men and women who excessively worry. Not only that, they are under-achievers, have poor self-images, and deal with anger.
Young people today have been severely affected by the demise of the home, the trauma of divorce, and the devastation that remains. But the fact is that many parents are still choosing their own way rather than God’s way. They’re choosing their own selfish behavior rather than being the godly models and parents that God has called them to be.
I’m going to say it clearly: God hates divorce. Now you may be thinking, “Yes, but there are exceptions.” Well, those exceptions don’t mitigate the damage that happens as a result of the split. God hates divorce.
God wants your family to be united, to live under his lordship, and to serve him. And when you keep the main thing the main thing, you’ll see how unity, love, and peace fill your home as you live in obedience to your Heavenly Father.
THE BEST WAY TO KEEP YOUR FAMILY TOGETHER IS TO LIVE UNDER THE LORDSHIP OF CHRIST. SO SET A GODLY EXAMPLY FOR YOUR CHILDREN BY LIVING A LIFE OF WORSHIP.
