On Divorce

“The Real Root Of Divorce”

Another Patton Associates S-M-A-R-TBriefing

Beware those whose wish to manipulate you!
Beware those whose wish to manipulate you!…intentionally or not!

Marriage experts and surveys seem to prove that the majority of marriage conflicts and divorces are rooted in problems between couples over money. I don’t buy it because that’s NOT what the New Covenant of the Bible says.

I believe the diabolically R-E-A-L problem at the root of much marital conflict and divorce is NOT money troubles! (R-E-A-L means Revolting~Enervating~Abhorrent~Life-taking ~ © gfp ’42™)

The R-E-A-L root of burgeoning marriage problems and divorce rates, inside and outside the church, is the position of people’s hearts as it relates to money and other ‘riches’.

Divorce is NOT about the lack of riches or gaining wealth!

If wealth of all kinds is one’s ultimate treasure, then people, including christians, are serving the demonic entity known as “Mammon”.

Grab those vicious voices about your spouse and throttle them!

However, if Jesus is a couple’s treasure, they are safely able to receive great wealth from him …to prosper with purpose in a happy marriage.

Plus, for some Jesus Followers, their “Gift of Giving” demands that their reward will include wealth …against which our King is NOT opposed!

But, for others of us…

“Jesus Followers need Holy Spirit to grace us to avoid the ‘fleshly’ lures of “filthy lucre”!”
