“Don’t let anyone separate what God has joined together” (Mark 10:9). “Don’t stop the children from coming to Me” (Mark 10:14). In today’s world, people often devalue the things that were very important to Jesus. When we speak about standing up for Jesus, we must remember that this means more than speaking His Word to others. It also means living by the values that Jesus held and taught. It will mean standing up for the things that matter – marriage is important, children are important.
