Divorce does not separate a married couple; rather, it tears them apart and leaves long-lasting wounds, because in marriage they have become one flesh. As hurtful as a broken marriage will be to the couple, sometimes the deepest emotional wounds are felt by their children.
Christ gave us a sober warning in His command to not offend little ones when He said, “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones” (Luke 17:2). Divorce is never a solution; it is only choosing another set of problems. When parents divorce, they are displaying attitudes and actions that are contrary to the nature of God. This can lead their children to have a distorted view of God, which can have serious and devastating repercussions in their lives. Many children from broken homes picture God as someone Who is distant and uninterested in their daily lives, a God Who will leave them during hard times, or as an angry, harsh God Who watches for things that He can punish. The greatest gift a father can give to his children is to love their mother. ~excerpts from Bill Gothard, Daily Success
