This Kind of Love

This Kind of Love
ďGreater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.Ē Ė John 15:13

For years Iíve been urging married couples to see how much we need to help each other develop the ďgreatestĒ love. A love that sacrifices itself for the enrichment of the other, that doesnít seek its own good but chooses to satisfy the desires of their spouse.

But donít get the impression that this love isn't beneficial for theone expressing it. From looking at my own marriage and many others, Iíve come to understand that enriching the life of another is often more satisfying than doing something for ourselves. As we reach out to another, our own needs for fulfillment and love are met.

Iíve seen that the most satisfied, joyous couples are those that have learned this kind of love and practice it daily. When a husband and wife both want their partner to receive lifeís best before they do, you have a marriage thatís going to exceed every wedding-day dream. Their love not only lasts; it continually grows. May the Lord bless us with this kind of love. Amen.

Grace and peace to you,

For Mercy Street Ministries, Iím Stan Baldwin.
