Daily Reading – Exodus 10-12 / Matthew 19:1-15
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Matthew 19:4-5 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
In a day and age where there is controversy over whom should be biblically married, it appears to me Jesus made it abundantly clear. The Pharisees came and asked was lawful for a man to put away his wife. They were looking for a legal answer to a moral question. Jesus first clarified who it was that should be married. God made man for woman and a woman for a man. On that foundation, He answered them.
When man wants to re-write morality, it would do us well to first reference God’s word. In the end people may do as they like. However, we have no authority to change God’s word to make it morally ok.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
When thinking on today’s issues,
where do you find your ethical values?
The world, or the word?
