People have an amazing knack for looking for a way out rather than a way to work things out. It was that way during the ministry of Jesus. One day He was approached by a group of Pharisees and asked a question about divorce. Rather than give to these people a cause for divorce, Jesus presented a case for marriage. In so doing He established five foundational pillars upon which to build a marriage.
Pillar #1 — The concept of difference, v. 4.
Pillar #2 — The concept of severance, v. 5a.
Pillar #3 — The concept of adherence, v. 5b.
Pillar #4 — The concept of confluence, vv. 5c—6a.
Pillar #5 — The concept of permanence, v. 6b.
God has a plan for your marriage. His goal is to take two and make them one. Satan also has a plan for your marriage. His goal is to take one and make them two.
