Matthew 19:4-6 and a Male and Female Goldfinch in Cosmos Flowers, Sarpy County, Nebraska.
“And Jesus answered and said, ‘Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning “Made them male and female,” and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh”? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.’” Matthew 19:4-6
The Scripture Speaks
God created the birds male and female. The birds know which one is male and which one is female. God made the males for the females and the females for the males.
Jesus said in the Gospel of Matthew that God made people male and female and He made the males for the females and the females for the males. Jesus described marriage as being between a male and a female.
Let the Word of God speak to our hearts. For it remains true forever. May we read it, follow it and be blessed by holding to it. Amen.
Read all of Matthew 19 and be encouraged by the goodness of God.

God Brings the Joy of Forgiveness
In this Bible passage God promises to forgive Israel of their sins. How great a joy and inspiration it is to know that God promises and gives Christians that forgiveness as well.
These verses create a beautiful image of God’s forgiveness. Just like when clouds or fog move in to cover the hills and mountains, Christ covers our sins. Only, unlike a fog, His forgiveness never fades away. He forgives forever.
Read all of Isaiah 44.
