Late breaking news yesterday.
Tiger Woods played golf.
And that is exactly as it should be. Playing golf is something Tiger is good at. What Tiger is NOT good at is commitment.
What's worse, he's not alone.
Does anyone say 'I do' anymore and really mean it?
Such a disturbing trend this business of unfaithfulness. Seems with each passing day, it becomes more acceptable in our society. Even among those who should know better, people who profess themselves as Christians. What a tragedy.
Some would have you believe that breaking marriage vows affect only the couple involved. What many fail to realize is that it permanently scars the children. I can tell you this with confidence because I am the adult child of an adulteress mother. It leaves children with enormous trust and boundary issues.
By the grace of God, my own personal scars are barely noticeable now. How thankful I am for that. And I'm thankful for a faithful husband and blessed marriage of some 38 years now. Next month we will celebrate our 39th anniversary. To God be the glory.
As the song by Clint Black says, "when I said I do, I meant I will".
Wonder if Tiger ever heard of it?
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be ONE flesh." Genesis 2:24
