Well I was reading the bible this morning, and I came across some interestng stuff. It made me kinda sad actually. I talked to one of my co-workers about it today too, and she said the same kinda stuff that’s in the bible. Here’s the passage.
Marriage at the Resurrection
23That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. 24″Teacher,” they said, “Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and have children for him. 25Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. 26The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. 27Finally, the woman died. 28Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?”
29Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. 30At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
So yeah, basically this is saying that marriage is just for here on earth. When we die and go to heaven, we won’t be married (well, we’re considered the bride of Christ, and we’ll be married to Him). Anyways, it just made me think about how I wouldn’t be married to the person I will be married to here on earth. It made me kind of sad. I have hopes of marrying someone, and having children, as long as the Lord doesn’t come back first, but at the same time, this makes me sad that the person I would spend my years with on earth, and share my inmost self with, wouldn’t be “married” to me in heaven. My co-worker brought up that we wouldn’t be sad about it at all in heaven, and that we would be pre-occupied with worshipping our Lord, which is true, but I dunno, my heart would want to love my wife as well. It’s kinda confusing I guess. Just my thoughts for today. Feel free to post your thoughts on this subject as well.
