ONE MAN ONE WIFE AT THE BEGINNING
TEXT: Gen. 2:24; Mark 10:6-8
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh… But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. 7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.” wedding

ONE MAN ONE WIFE IS THE FORMATION AND IT TEACHES US CONTENTMENT IN ALL THINGS. GOD HAS BEEN THE GOD OF ORDERLINESS AND WANTS US TO BE ORDERLY AND CONTENTED WITH WHAT HAS GIVEN US.
WE ARE NOT ANIMALS THAT HAVE NO RULE IN THEIR MARRIAGE WITH EACH OTHER. AS THE ORDEAL OF POLYGAMY CAN NOT BE COMPARED WITH MONOGAMY, HE MADE THEM ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN IN THE BEGINNING AND THAT IS THE FORMATION OF GODS OWN INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE.
