A True Love!

The Holy Bible describes love as patient and kind. It does not envy, 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, and always perseveres (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).

Today, very few people know the meaning of love.  Love has become just a four letter word, that is lightly used without any meaning.  True love is strong, unwavering and lasting affection between a husband and a wife, who are in a happy, loving and fulfilling godly relationship.  A married couple who love God and live their life to honor Him every single day!

Therefore, how a man looks, how much money he has in his bank account, the size of his house and the type of job he has, should never be the basis of why you marry someone. All these things are temporary and will never last!

The following story is a beautiful and wonderful example of a true love. Enjoy!

A man married a beautiful girl.  He loved her very much.  One day she developed a skin disease.  Slowly she started to lose her beauty.  It so happened that one day her husband left for a tour.  While returning he met with an accident and lost his eyesight.  However, their married life continued as usual.  But as days passed she lost her beauty gradually. Her blind husband did not know this and there was not any difference in their married life.  He continued to love her and she also loved him very much.  One day she died.  Her death brought him a great sorrow.  He finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town.

A man from behind called and said, “Now how will you be able to walk all alone?  All these days your wife used to help you”.  He replied, “I am not blind.  I was acting because if she knew l could see her skin condition due to a disease, it would have pained her more than her disease.  I didn’t love her for her beauty alone, but I fell in love with her caring and loving nature.  So, I pretended to be blind.  I only wanted to keep her happy”.

Now this is what I call true love.  Always remember beauty fades with time, but heart and soul will always be the same.  Love your husband or future husband for what he is on the inside, not the outside!

With all lowliness and gentleness, with long suffering, bearing with one another in love –  Ephesians 4:2 (NKJV)
