Marriage Before LOVE!

I remember a story of a husband who went to his Pastor for counseling. In his hands were pages of complaints against his wife. After hours of uninterrupted listening, the Pastor couldn't help but ask, "If she is that bad, why did you marry her?". Immediately the man shot back, "She wasn't like this at first!" The pastor unable to hold back his thoughts asked, "So are you saying that she is like this because she's been married to you?"

Whether or not this story is true, it does suggest an important lesson to be learned. At times, feelings towards our spouse may grow cold. But LOVE is much more than feelings- it is a LIFE-LONG commitment.

So, walking in obedience to the Lord, let us all keep our marriage vows to LOVE
"till death do us part."
