The world today is telling us that there is nothing strange about a family consisting of two dads or two moms. On the contrary, these ideas are very strange and will not lead to good outcomes – either for those families or for society.
God designed marriage quite simply: one man + one woman for one lifetime. Every child needs and deserves to come into the world nurtured by a mother and father. One of the greatest concerns Jesus showed during His earthly ministry was for widows and orphans – because these families were not experiencing the completion God desired for them. If being the child of a single parent was all that great, why would Jesus have been concerned about it?
It is high time we adults stopped thinking of our own pleasures and focused on the children we are bringing into this world. Wherever possible, make sure each child keeps the mother and father who brought him or her into the world. It won’t make life easy…but it will make it easier.
