What do you do when you have to ask an embarrassing or awkward question, or a question you feel you should know the answer to? Why, you ask the question and simply say that you are “asking for a friend!” The next several weeks, we will follow Jesus as he journeys toward his work of saving us in Jerusalem. As he does, we will watch and listen and learn from our Savior the answer to questions we have or questions we’ve been asked. Questions like, “Is God good?” “Does God care?” and “Do I have to be humble?”  Today, we look at families and answer the question: What is marriage exactly? In his Word, our God lovingly gives us not only the template for marriage and family, but how they work. The closest we can get to a mirror of the love of God for us is the mirror of the love that he wants us to have for one another in the family. The goal of family members, husbands and wives, parents and children, is to reflect the love of God for us in self giving love for one another in the family.
