Encouragement for Your Marriage: Man cannot fully find himself except through a sincere gift of himself

 

 Man cannot fully find himself except through a sincere gift of himself.


According to For Your Marriage:

That “sincere gift of self” is a daily call to sacrifice. It’s not feel-good stuff. It hurts. Like sacrifice always does.

Love comes first. Charity above all things. We can be otherwise “perfect” – earning a decent living, setting up a home, having children and educating them well – but if we fail to recognize the importance of loving our spouse with self-giving love, we are failing at the most important thing. None of that other stuff matters.

We aren’t all perfect at self-sacrifice, of course, and in a healthy marriage there is plenty of room for mistakes, mercy, and forgiveness. The fundamentally important call to hear, however, is the call to love one another and to fully find yourself through a “sincere gift of self” to your spouse. That kind of love isn’t just “nice if you can find it”; it’s what marriage is."

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:13

哥林多前书 13:13 - 现在常存的有信、望、爱这三样,其中最大的是爱。

I will leave you with this touching article and video:
