Love and Commitment
The website For Christian Girls is featuring a new article written by a High School Sophomore on God’s love and what it means to us as His children. I hope you will read what this young person has to say.
Love is one of the greatest of motivators and it should perpetually loom before our eyes to keep us focused.
In a fleshly sense, love is a fickle, selfish emotion. However, in God’s eyes, love is action and commitment (1 Corinthians 13:4-8). Jesus told us that if we loved Him, we would obey Him (John 14:15).
In our own relationships, love is always action and should reign supreme. In a marriage, we must always have scales ready to weigh our small arguments and disagreements against a lifetime together. They are all minuscule against the years we have entrusted to us. Commitment means that we persevere no matter what comes against us. We stand strong against the waves of pain, heartache and troubles in this world. Clasping our hands, we walk through them all together.
Let us always remember these noble goals and we will truly understand “until death do we part.”
