More than a happy occasion
A wedding is both joyous and serious.
Question: What is the most important part of the ceremony? Answer: The exchange of vows.
The “I do” is a binding commitment each makes to the other, to stay together for the duration.
The only statute of limitations is “until death do us part.”
Seeing marriage through God’s eyes
As the couple make their solemn pledges, God and their friends are witnesses to this transaction.
God takes their promises seriously, and so should we. The exchange of vows is no place for silliness or frivolity. It is a holy transaction and must never be taken lightly!
“What therefore God has joined together,” Jesus said, “let no man separate” (Matthew 19:6).
Unless both bride and groom are determined to maintain this mutual commitment, what value are their photogenic smiles?
