A Rock Solid Marriage Must Be Built On The Right Foundation
It is imperative that we teach the next generation what marriage should look like. Because the very foundation of society is marriage, it would seem that the world is set out to destroy it. Even the church has staggering divorce rates. What can we do to help our marriage be one that not only lasts the test of time but is one that makes our children witness it and say “I want that!” It must be built on the right foundation. Everyone knows that a beautiful house when built on a faulty foundation is only a facade that will eventually have major problems.
The world’s perspective about marriage is that “the other person is there to meet my needs” which makes it easy in this throw away society to move on if they don’t meet those needs. Sadly, in reality no one can meet my needs.
God’s prescription for marriage can be found in Genesis 2:24-25, “For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and shall cleave to his wife and they shall become one flesh, and the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.”
