Built to Last



Genesis 2:24 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.”






“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother …”


●      Let go of parents

●      Let go of past relationships

●      Let go of perfection


BIG QUESTION: What if you were married to you? (screen)


“Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards.” – Benjamin Franklin (screen)



“… and be united to his wife …” (cleave)


●      Permanence through diversity.


(screen only)

“What makes a marriage count, is not how compatible the two of you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.” – Leo Tolstoy


●      Permanence through adversity.

Genesis 2:25 “The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.”

Song of Songs 4:12 You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride; you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain.

Why “keep it in the garden”?

1.    It pleases God.


2.    It protects you.

to me

the hurricane pics will go in order at the very beginning of the message, just


the pic about the kids answers goes right after that first scripture, Genesis 2:24


the Tim hawkins video clips goes after the permanence in diversity point right before the Tolstoy quote


the It's not about the nail video clip goes right after the points about Unity (emotional - learn together)


the rick and kay warren pic goes at the very end of the message
