What has been the happiest day of your life? On January 23, 2021, my daughter got married in a small masked ceremony in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.

The crowds following Jesus were large, we are told in Matthew 19:2. Attempting to trap Jesus and cast a shadow on his popularity, the Pharisees asked Jesus a hard question about divorce. Far from trapping him, they handed Jesus a microphone through which he quoted and elaborated on Genesis 2:24 and cast God’s vision for marriage through the ages. The disciples even bristled at his words.
