This weekend I will officiate the wedding of a dear friend of mine. During the flight from Louisville to Portland I had the opportunity to read and meditate on the book of Malachi. I will briefly share what I came across while I chewed through the second chapter. We find the Lord rebuking the priests of Judah.
“And this second thing you do. You cover the LORD’s altar with tears, with weeping and groaning because he no longer regards the offering or accepts it with favor from your hand. But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the LORD was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth.”
