The Typo

In a study Bible I found a reference to “the scaredness of the marriage vows.” Scaredness?

This brings to mind the July evening in 1969 when Sara and I faced the preacher in front of a gathering of family and friends. Because of all I’d been taught about the permanence and significance of the marriage covenant, my palms were sweaty, and I kept telling myself, “I must not faint!”

To God, marriage vows really matter!

Our society is hurting because of lightly-taken, easily-broken marriage vows. God intends for these vows to be kept! (Malachi 2:13-16; Matthew 19:6)

How much do they matter to us?

Could brides and grooms could use a bit more “scaredness” when they say, “I do”?
