1+1=1

Now you all look

and stare at me

Wondering why I mentioned

this equation so inaccurately?

One of the simplest

math problems ever.

You don't have to be that clever

Hold up one finger

Then the other finger

and of course you have 2 fingers,

Don't you?

But that's not what I mean

in this particular situation

Please,

Don't be frustrated with me

There's a point to all of this...

Yes,

1+1=2

Yet

When you have 1 flesh

and another flesh

The  2 shall become 1 flesh

into 1 central entity

Immediately

1

Not about me

Not about she

But about we.

1+1=1

In marriage

It's the most important math problem ever.

Means that I will leave

my mother and father

and cling to my wife

for the rest of my life

1+1=1

For my marriage

This union

Never let anyone

come in between you

and to do so

Is to have the enemy

bring in

Pain

Strife

Mistrust

Disgust

1+1=1

Marriage is together

not apart

Being consistent with intention

Or the enemy will attack you with division

1+1=1

Your marriage is about right order:

Your vertical relationship with God

is of the upmost significance

So that the relationship with your spouse

enhances

Along with your family, job and ministry....

1+1=1.
