Scripture of the Day - March 17, 2012

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it...
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

Paul gives a very strong admonition to husbands. Jesus loved the church so much that he gave His life for it. Men are instructed to love their wives with the same intensity. This kind of love is selfless not selfish. This kind of love wants the absolute best for the other even if it means you sacrifice. This kind of love cares about the needs of the wife and wants to meet those needs. You may not always understand her needs but at least you have the desire to please her and take care of her. After all, you love your own body, you meet your own needs, you take care of yourself... Paul is saying that you should have the same desire for your wife, and yes, even if it means sacrifice on your part. Prove your love. Love in deed and in truth.
