Matthew 5:31-32
"Missing the Point About Divorce"

At this point in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus speaks to the topic of divorce. As we listen to what he says, we must guard against missing his point — that marriage is to be lasting and that we should not be looking for ways out. When the gospel takes root in our hearts, it changes us into men and women who, if we are married, go to every length to preserve and nurture our marriages in accordance with God’s design and desire.
