Love Dare - Day 31 - Love and Marriage
A man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. – Genesis 2:24
We are long past 'most' of this. I say 'most' because there really are things that you just never get over. As the saying goes, you can forgive, but it's hard to forget. That doesn't mean that it sticks to your brain every moment of every day, but it never goes away.
When it comes to leaving, I think we did this along time ago…when we moved back to Georgia. We were never near her family and parents, so we never really had anything to leave. As far as MY family goes, there were so many rips torn in the family blanket after our father passed, there was no way it could keep us all warm and fuzzy.
Maybe that's the take away from the 'leaving' part of this message. Maybe it's me that never really 'left' my family. If I would have done that, we probably wouldn't be living in Georgia today.
When it comes to the the 'cleaving' part, I think we do a pretty good job of that as well. We have both grown closer as we've gotten older. We know that the only people we can REALLY count on, is each other.
|Today's Dare: |
Is there a "leaving" issue you haven't been brave enough to conquer yet? Confess it to your spouse today, and resolve to make it right. The oneness of your marriage is dependent upon it. Follow this with a commitment to your spouse and to God to make your marriage the top priority over every other human relationship.
|May they all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You. (John 17:21 HCSB)|
