Today's Verse : Malachi 2:16


February 16, 2012

"I hate divorce," says the LORD God of Israel, ... "So guard
yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith."
-- Malachi 2:16

In a throw-away world, God wants us to know that he hates it
when we throw away people. Let's call each other to God's standard,
to God's holiness. Let's not let our spirits be corrupted by
selfishness and resentment. Let's not break faith with God by
treating those closest to us with contempt. And in a world where
people get broken by divorce, let's go find them, include them, and
bring them home to God's family for healing.

Almighty God, please make our words strong, our commitments
lasting, and our lives faithful to the promises we make to you and
to each other. Thank you for the great example of so many of your
people who have had incredibly strong marriages. Bless me and my
house with a legacy of faithfulness that lasts for generations to
come. In addition, dear Father, please use me to bring home to you
those who have been broken and disheartened in marriages that
failed. In Jesus' name. Amen.
