23 And Adam said:
“This is now bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of Man.”
24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Our society wonders why we have so many problems.  I believe the answers are contained in these couple of verses.  All life starts with a man and a woman.  Both are unique and at the same time equal.  It takes both to make a whole.  Divided a family cannot stand.  Our society has condoned divorce, gay marriage, and children born out of wedlock.  Children are our future.  Without a strong moral family upbringing, our children are left to look to our world for answers.  This can only mean disaster.

I confess, I am part of this moral decay.  When I got married I loved my wife and believed in the morals I stated, however my marriage dissolved and two young children were left to be raised in a broken home.  Why?  I had the right intentions.  I believe its because I didn’t put God first.  I followed worldly principles and failed to acknowledge God.

Today I am single.  I am not looking for someone.  I look towards God and if it is in His plan, I may one day be able to reflect the above verses.  I pray for our society to once again look towards God for the answers.  It we do, our children will grow up in a better place.  We are not promised tomorrow.  We only have today!  Today I will look towards God to guide my steps.
