6-Week Series: Against All Odds

Sermon Illustrations

Actress Julia Roberts’ wedding to Daniel Moder featured the vow to “love, support, but not obey.” Will Smith’s vows merely promised good manners. He revealed that in his vows to Jada Pinkett in 1997 “our vows did not promise to forsake all others. The vow that we made was that ‘you will never hear that I did something after the fact.’ One spouse will ask the other, ‘Look I need to have sex with somebody—please approve it’.”

Civilization hangs on promises kept—and on promises worth keeping. These grotesque vows are parables of our times. (AlbertMohler.com, 8-5-05)
