I never thought of it this way before. The idea that marriage is a cage and its here to protect whoever is in the cage.
God in his infinite wisdom has designed a system (nature, science, and processes). The institution of marriage is no different.
I especially agree with the following quotes:
Love initiates marriage. But marriage sustains love.
We’re in a culture where parents do everything to give their kids an advantage, but forget the most valuable thing we can bestow upon our children is a happy, healthy marriage between Mom and Dad.
To think longer term, to stay committed even when they don’t feel like it, and to trust God for the love and protection He provides through marriage.
My theme scripture this year is Proverbs 3:5-6.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
I hope to chronicle what I learn and can share the insights and the wisdom I get from the Bible and my experiences.
