By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about Kim Kardashian’s divorce. The announcement comes a whole 72 days after her $10 million wedding. When I was reciting Colossians 3:18-19 today, I was reminded of this most recent Hollywood marital demise.

18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.

Being a single person, I have no idea about the full joys and trials of marriage–this is by no means a chastisement of Kim and Kris nor of divorce itself. But rather, I was led to pray for my future marriage and marriages of my friends and family.

I also thanked God for marriage, as a picture of Christ and His bride, the Church. Oh, He loves us so and is not harsh with us (v.19) and we are compelled to submission as is fitting because of His perfect love (v.18)!
