Today’s memo comes from Proverbs 29:18
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Most of us are familiar with the first part of this verse. There is often more focus on having a vision and that is very important. What does keeping the law (of God) have to do with a vision? Here are my thoughts: Having a vision gives one direction, focus and a vision that is based on the Law of God. This anchors one in his/her vision. When two souls are one in marriage, then how much stronger can that anchor be? There can be no outside distractions. There can be no lack of purpose. That bond then is unbreakable. The Preacher, the son of David puts it this way: Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken. The Sacred Bond cannot be broken when there is partnership with Christ whose vision for your relationship is perfect. What is your vision for your marriage?
