Quotes on Divorce from the Bible

"When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife." Deuteronomy 24:1-2

"But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace." 1 Corinthians 7:10-15

Jesus replied, "Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, expect for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery." Matthew 19:8-9

  • Coach's Advice
    When I first read this quote, it really made me smile. It is such a great picture of what life sometimes gives to us. In our grand scheme of things, we set out in our very safe row boat for a quiet day of sun and fishing only to find ourselves falling into the river and learning to swim. Life is nothing like what we originally may have thought. And all of us at one point or another in our lives have found ourselves out of the boat and learning to swim. If you choose to become bitter and resent this change of station in life, you will eventually sink. If you choose to take on the challenge of being in a new place, trust that this is a natural part of the journey, and enjoy the experience, you will learn to swim. It's your choice - sink or swim.

"If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it!" - Jonathan Winters

"When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on." - Franklin D. Roosevelt

"You will either step forward into growth or you will step back into safety." - Abraham Maslow

Quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe about never giving up

"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much." - Mother Theresa

"A positive attitude will not solve all the problems in the world, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort." - Unknown

"Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?" - Mary Manin Morrissey
