GOD MEANT IT FOR GOOD
When the Pharisees asked Jesus why God would allow divorce, He gave them a reason I don’t believe they expected. Jesus’ answer [“because your hearts were hard”] transcends the concept of divorce. He really answers the universal question – “Why do bad things happen?”
Hard hearts equal broken people. Bad things happen because we live in a broken world – we are broken. That brokenness exhibits itself in many ways: lying, cheating, cruelty, and yes, even divorce. However, there is hope. Divorce (or any difficult thing) does not have to define who we are. God wants us to move forward and still wants what is best for us. He wants to restore us and desires that we experience His best. After all, He meant it that way, even from the beginning. God is for you!
Action: Embrace God’s goodness for you.
