The Kitchen Table Devotional: The Game of Life Day 43
Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18
Keep sacred things sacred and life will be special, if not life will become scary. Marriage is a God idea for man’s insufficiency. This life is about “relationships” and marriage is to be the most intimate of those relationships. We were not made to live in isolation. Isolation is used to punish and break a person. God created marriage to mend man’s problem and mimic God’s person. God is three in one and man is to become one with another. Man and woman are to become each other’s compliment and company for a lifetime. The two are to become one and live as one for a lifetime. It’s a sacred relationship that becomes more and more special as we go through time but it’s a relationship that becomes more and more scary if we don’t keep it sacred. The Bible says, Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge. (Hebrews 13:4) Marriage is a relationship of fun, fulfilment, and faith for those who make is sacred. It’s a relationship that mimics our relationship with God where two people rule and right in life, over life, through life together with God. It’s special!
