A Unique Unity

I didn't grow up in a Christian family, so God was never first in their lives, but my parents were married for 45 yrs before Dad died. Don't get me wrong, God is VERY important!!!! But Christian homes are wrecked by divorce at almost the same rate as non-Christian... there's more in the element of staying together when non-Christians are able to succeed at marriage too.

That element is commitment, and even ungodly people are able to make lifelong commitments to one another. The hindrance to commitment is selfishness, when people become selfish they cease to be self-giving and marriage takes a lot of self-giving.

Marriage is not based on the needs and desires of one, marriage is a process of blending the hearts of two into the desire of us - a unique unity of us as one. Divorce is the result of the process of self-thinking, instead of us-thinking.
