    Mack (cont.); God made marriage for men to build their house, their family. Marriage is between a man and a woman. Marriage is friendship and loyalty and learning how to be unselfish. Marriage is so you aren't alone going through troubles; and it will also bring about trouble in the flesh. God HATES divorce, and He expects us to work through our troubles and differences by love. Marriage is GOOD!
  • A disciple
    Hi Mack; A Marriage is a Covenant of Love and Fidelity to be One flesh unto the LORD, and Family for Lifelong Companionship. The LORD God built the Woman out of the Man, to be a Help unto him; and upon presenting her to Adam, Adam pronounced the Law of Marriage for ever: "This now is bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman for she was taken out of Man..." Joined together!

    I have a question please...

    What does God consider marriage?
  • Nancy Miranti
    A reminder that HE backs us up when OUR backs are to the wall. All we have to do is not move away from Him, or He lets our enemies conquer us.
  • Bryan McCloud
    This chapter teaches me that know matter how much God does for us; we are still ungrateful. We are just like the Isarealites who murmur and complain against God after all he has done for us. Like Proverbs 27:30 states, "hell and destruction are never full, and so the eyes of men are never satisfied."
