The Master Design for human society on this earth comes out of the mind of the chief architect, God Almighty. It is he that has made us, David writes in his Psalms. So, the whole idea, men and women cemented together in marriage as one and developing more men and women for God’s kingdom comes out of the mind of God and he is fiercely jealous of his design. The prophet Malachi tells us that he hates it when that design breaks up. “I hate divorce,” says Malachi in Malachi 2:16. Uniting two very different people together is a lot of work. That is why we need the saving power of Jesus Christ who died and rose again. Nothing institutionally is more strategic than marriage and family life.
