Leave and Cleave

Today’s reading Genesis 1-3

Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. He is the maker. He is the decider. He made a man and and a woman. He told them to be fruitful and multiply! Marriage was God’s plan.

They were to leave and cleave. Leave their family and cleave to their partner, their spouse.

They were created man and woman. That was God’s plan for a family!

Have you left? Are you cleaving to your spouse? Are you in love and working at loving each other?

This is God’s plan and it is right and it is good!
