Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things I Corinthians 13:4-7
As me and my wife celebrate our anniversary I reflect on the words the pastor spoke on the shore of Jamaica when we got married. The words written by the Apostle Paul inspired by the Holy Spirit, give us a foundation on what Love really is.
In order to have a successful marriage you need to have the true definition of Love. Without a true understanding of Love, marriage will fail. Because Love is sacrificial not selfish. If you put yourself first all the time, then you will end up with yourself all the time. Marriage is the covenant of two people becoming one (Genesis 2:24, Mark 10:8)
If you base your marriage on shallow things you will have a shallow future. True Love endures all things, it wont endure if your marriage is not deeply rooted in Love and God. Anyone can endure good time but when the hard times hit a marriage, its essential to have that foundation to stand on
I’ve been blessed to be married to my soulmate and best friend Heidi, we have been together now over 20 years. We have celebrated good times and endured the hard times, however our true love for one another has enabled us to stay strong and united.
Because of our wonderful marriage , we are able to have created a wonderful family with our two boys. I cant think of a greater blessing from God than for my wife and kids. Although we are not perfect we stand firmly rooted in the true Love that endures all things Amen!
