I want to share something that I read recently……
“The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money, or under pressure, or hungry for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.”
Are you ready for the hard times? Are you willing to work through the pain and sacrifice it takes to make your marriage successful?
I will challenge you this way…..
Would you give up on your children? Or do you love them unconditionally regardless of the things that they may choose to do? Most of us love our children unconditionally. Although they might receive tough love….we would never turn our backs on them. Shouldn’t we be loving our spouse in the same way?
Be Strong. Act Like Men.
