Jesus tells us to take His teachings for what they really are without qualifying them. This straightforward simple acceptance is as a child might do.
He was speaking directly about the issue of divorce, which is so common today.
In His time, divorce was devastating to a wife, particularly if she had no other source of social or financial sustenance.
It can also be devastating now for couples who go through a divorce.
Let us pray for couples experiencing difficulties in their relationship that they may find a resolution.
Let us pray for those who experience divorce, that God will heal them and guide them to a peaceful future.
