Leviticus, Chapter 25, Verse 17
Do not deal unfairly with one another, then; but stand in fear of your God. I, the LORD, am your God.
Fairness is a word that means physical beauty. In a sense God is asking us to not do those things that mar the physical beauty of another. This means in essence that we need to nourish each other and to give to share with other the gifts we receive from God. This means to respect each person as a person, physically, mentally, and emotionally; to provide for their welfare.
Today is the start of national marriage week. One of the greatest ways we can honor our creator is in how we deal fairly with our spouses.
Together For Marriage
Marriage works. It makes people happier, live longer, and build more economic security. Children with married parents perform better in school.

But in the midst of challenges, we forget how marriage can benefit our personal lives. We are losing our determination and the skills to keep marriages healthy and strong. Marriage breakdown is costly to our kids and to society at large. Divorce and unwed childbearing cost the U.S. taxpayers a whopping $112 billion annually. In these economic challenging times, building stronger marriages helps build a stronger nation.
