Many people in our culture today do not give the institution of marriage the respect that it deserves. Some want to redefine it. Others simply choose to ignore it and pretend that marriage is merely optional for a man and woman who want to live together. Still others do not take their marriage vows seriously, and their neglect manifests itself in various ways.
However, marriage is a wonderful, God-given institution, and the Bible says that marriage must be honored by everyone. Those who don’t honor marriage can expect to face some negative consequences if they do not repent.
Let’s all decide to give marriage the respect that it deserves.
“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.”—Hebrews 13:4.
