Love Must Be Fed
‘THEY ARE NO LONGER TWO BUT ONE’
Marriage is not so much about finding the right person as becoming the right person. If you don’t keep growing together you’ll grow apart. It’s inevitable. Marriage is a covenant, not a contract. There’s a big difference! Contracts won’t sustain the pain, the pitfalls and the pressures. They focus only on ‘what I can get’. Contracts are enforced by courts but covenants are enforced by character. One requires the giving of your name, the other the giving of your life. Look around you: all the best ideas come from the God who said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone …’ (Genesis 2:18). Then He introduced Eve. Notice, she was not made from Adam’s head to top him or his feet to be trampled on by him but out of his side to be equal with him; from under his arm to be protected by him; and from near his heart to be loved by him.
What causes love to grow cold? Chuck Swindoll writes: ‘It isn’t one action or one word but a series of little unresolved spats that now make television the solution to the problems of a hard day and silence us when we should say, “Thank you,” or “I’m sorry,” or, “You look really nice today.” We no longer say, “I love you,” because those words mock the special meaning they once had. It’s too painful to remember that those feelings we said we’d never lose were, tear by tear, left in the past.’ Today, do something to make your relationship/marriage stronger!
Have you ever thought that anything that lives eats and requires food to survive and sustain it? What have you been feeding your relationship? Any food that we take into our bodies, either works for our good or destroys us. Is it any wonder to you that, most of the diseases that are there in the world are all food related, that’s why today there is now much focus on eating health? Any relationship is not an exception, what you feed and eat will come back to you with good rewards of bad rewards. They say garbage in, garbage out. Watch what you eat, because your relationship will be there for a lifetime and you will reap rewards of how you fed you relationship in the long run. Don’t just worry about the fat you take in your physical body, worry also about the unfaithfulness, cheating, double standards you feed you own relationship too, where do you think it will all go? As you feed your body feed also your relationship with the right food.
Your body is the most important tool to get you to your dreams so you feed it well and take care of it. The same with your relationships, they are your number one priority to get to the next level, so feed them well and take great care of them.
