Last week my wife and I went to a wedding and it was a beautiful occasion. Both families were there as well as friends. It was a neat location in the mountains. The bride wore a stunning white gown and veil and the groom was well dressed but so were the bride’s maids and the groomsmen. The preacher performed the ceremony and after their vows to God there was lovely music followed by lot of visiting between both families and their friends and to top it off there was lots of good food. That wedding reminded me of the early biblical weddings that took place 2 to 3 thousand years ago Weddings were joyous and wonderful occasions but with the consent and blessing of both families, (Exodus 22:17). There were gifts involved, (Genesis 24:53) and the bride’s maids and groomsmen were dressed in beautiful array. The bride wore a special gown and jewelry and a veil, (Isaiah 49:18 & 61:10, Jeremiah 2:32). There was music and plenty of food and gifts, (Genesis 29:22). These things took place from 2000 to 3000 years ago. Today it is up to the bride and groom as to what kind of wedding they want, it may be very simple or very elaborate but I think the most important thing is that they bring God into the picture. And after the wedding they try to have a Godly or Christian marriage. See you in Church next Sunday.
