Matthew 23 verse 33

Matthew 5 Verse 31 To 32 Meaning

31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Verse 31 To 32 Meaning

In the old testament in the book of Deuteronomy permission was given to the man to divorce his wife for other reasons besides adultery. But Jesus is now making it very clear things have changed.

Only marital unfaithfulness (adultery) can a divorce be granted in God’s eyes. If we divorce now by any other reason than adultery, it’s now putting the sin of adultery on the woman and anybody who marries her. Do you think that is fair? No, it’s not.

I seem to think in today’s life a lot of people tend to take marriage very likely. There is no essence of true commitment. The ability to end a marriage is to easy. Marriage is sacred and for life, so let’s keep it that way.

Get hold of the marriage vows, read and understand them before marriage. Also, ask God for guidance through scripture. God will help you. I have been happily married for 24yrs and are looking forward to many more.
