The biblical concept of marriage is that marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman to live together in mutual love and respect for the glory of God. Marriage is not about us. It is about God and His kingdom. God ordained marriage as the foundational unit of society. Marriage, done God’s way, creates the safest and best environment in which to rear children.
But not all couples follow the covenant principles of marriage. For example covenant marriage is based on steadfast love – looking out for the interest of each other. Seeking to encourage and support each other. Covenant marriages also require confronting and forgiving when wrongs are committed. If you find this difficult, remember God is our source of power for marriage and for life.
