To whom are you married? Perhaps you are legally married and your answer is, “Well, that’s obvious. I’m married to my spouse, but I’m still discovering who I’m married to!” Maybe you are single and you say, “It’s obvious. I’m not married to anyone.” Our text says being unmarried is not an option. So, again, to whom are you married? This is a really important question, because your marriage determines your identity and life orientation.
We’re married to the people or things we love most. Whatever we most value and cherish in our hearts invariably controls and guides us. So, another way to ask the question today is this: whom or what do we love the most? It may be a person (a significant other, a spouse, or a friend). It may be a thing (a religion, a career, status, or wealth). To whom or to what is your heart most bound?
