Unselfish Love Holds the Marriage Together
We often hear the term “unconditional love” when it comes to relationships, but “unselfish love” is another term that we should know. Unselfish love is the glue that holds marriages together. The Apostle Paul states, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). It’s important that we subdue our own egos and selfish pride for the sake of our family. True Christian love is not a feeling; it is something we must make the effort to practice every day.
