The Sacredness of Marriage

Jesus said that the way things had been going among the Jews, that if a man wanted to divorce his wife, he had to be sure to give her a certificate of divorce (Matthew 5:31).
However, Jesus wanted us to know just how special marriage is and that we cannot break marriage for just any reason, but He said, “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” (Matthew 5:32).
We tend to be guided by our feelings and by what we want and desire. God created marriage, and we do well to operate it as He directed and commanded. Therefore, do not seek to break your marriage for just any reason, but the Lord indicated that divorce can only happen when one spouse commits sexual immorality.
Do you honor marriage with your beliefs and conduct?
