Want to know what kills love? Check out the email I received.
“For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”[a But if you are always biting and devouring one another [in selfishness, bickering and strife], watch out! Beware of destroying [consuming] one another.” Galatians 5:13-15, NLT
Are you too well trained as a consumer? Do you expect to get a great deal in every area of life? Have you let that self-centric consumerism drift into how you view your spouse, your marriage or relationship? Do you argue or pull away from your spouse because they didn’t behave the way you wanted? Have you let sensual entertainment or pornography turn sex into consumption? Porn kills love. Consumption kills love. It’s time to shift from consumer to investor in your relationships.
Love is putting the interests of another ahead of yourself. God loves you while you do not deserve it.
Consumption is not love. Love is putting the interests of another ahead of yourself. God loves you while you do not deserve it. He models an investor relationship. Decide to be an investor. Express gratitude. Compliment. Apologize. Forgive. Pay Attention. Meet someone else’s need. Ask your spouse how you can best love them and add value to your relationship.
