Pray for Marriages (Love is a gift…)


Greetings Prayer Warriors,

A few weeks ago while listening to the radio, the topic was marriage.  Of course, my ears perked up.   I heard the following:

Love is a gift, not a trade.

What would the state of marriages be if we lived that! out?!   What if everything we did, said, and provided for our spouse was all gift?

The host continued:

Marriage is dying to self.

Well, I thought, I guess that would be necessary if love is a gift, not a trade.   Can one love without expectations?  

Well, we do have a perfect example of that.  Stop, look at a crucifix, and mediate on His Passion.  Love as a gift, not a trade.

It (love) does not seek its own interests. 1 Corinthians 13:5

Pray for yourself, your spouse, and/or other marriages, that we as children of God may learn by His example, to give love without expectations. 

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Love someone without expectations.  Pass it on!
