Jesus gives clarity to marriage and divorce making it clear that His perfect will involves being one for life.  He also reminds us that when we have questions the best answers are found in the Scriptures rather than opinion or theory.

Revelation

There is no room in a Morphed follower of Christ to be hard-hearted.  When our head, heart and hands are surrendered to God then we will soften to His will and better love others in our lives…like our spouse.  There is much ministry in giving that love well to the one that God has given you.
