God’s Blog #4: Leaving your father and mother



I’m not one to brag, but it’s important to note before going on that I’m a bestselling author. You’ve know doubt heard of my book, The Bible, but it’s not always so clear you—that’s the universal you—know what is in it. For example: I told Adam quite early on that man would one day leave his father and mother (yes, this was confusing for Adam, who had no parents) to take a beautiful bride. Marriage and family and offspring, amen!

But too many of my children these days have missed a crucial part of that statement: “shall leave his father and mother.” You’ve heard of them. They’re called Twixters, and they are like Tom Hanks in “Big”—growing older and larger but not yet ready to forgo free rent, even, in many cases, after they have cleaved to a spouse.

I am not pleased.
