We meet the man or woman that we plan to spend the rest of our lives with. When you first meet each other you’re full of love for each other, lots of laughs, fun dates, and so much more. This person is the man/woman of your dreams!! You say…I Do and said your vows in front of family and friends. Most importantly before God.
Then things are not perfect. Someone falls short. Something happens in your marriage. Your upset with each other. Life happens….etc. You think I am done with this person but that is not what you committed to do. You committed to say I do again and again to each other.
When your marriage doesn’t go as planned…remember why you fell in love with this person. Remember your vows. Pray, show grace, be humble, forgive and keep on loving each other. Most importantly love each other unconditionally and remember “Love IS the GREATEST”!
1 Corinthians 13
Love Is the Greatest
13 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it;[a] but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
8 Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages[b] and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever! 9 Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! 10 But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.
11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. 12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.[c] All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
