Marriage - The First Institution Established by God

Dec 31, 1969

In the bible, Genesis Chapters 1-11 lay the foundation for how we have come to believe what we believe about G-d, creation, sin and redemption. In chapter 2:21-25 we see the first institution established by G-d, Marriage.

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 23 And Adam said: "This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man." 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.


Marriage between a man and a woman was ordained by G-d before there was conception of children or the establishment of government. The family was the second institution ordained by G-d and the third institution established by G-d was government.


What we learn from this reading is that the building blocks for established order in society  is first marriage, then family and finally government. The foundation is the most important part of any structure being built whether it's spiritual, physical or intellectual. Everything needs a proper foundation if it is to stand and endure. Marriage is the first Institution established by G-d for very reason; without it, society can neither exist nor survive.
