What is love? One definition says, “Love is the feeling that you feel when you feel a feeling like you’ve never felt before.” If that is your definition of love, I can tell you, that kind of love will never lead you to a life-long marriage. The euphoric feelings are temporary. It is interesting that in Ephesians 5:25 husbands are commanded to love their wives. If the intense feelings of love were permanent, why would God command a husband to love his wife? The fact is, they are not permanent and love is not a feeling, but an attitude with appropriate behavior. Love is the attitude which says, “I’m married to you, so what can I do to help you?” Love is choosing to be kind and supportive. Is that your attitude?
