Boundaries in Your Marriage

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it. Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth. Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits. Love will never end.

Why is it that so many marriages these days seem to end in divorce, and that many of those that don’t, fall so far short of what they should or could be? Why is that?

The most important, the most sublime – and some days – the most challenging of all human relationships is marriage. We think of it as something of an institution, but the reality is that each husband and wife have to make it up as they go. And all too often that doesn’t turn out so well.

There’s no doubt that when two imperfect people love each other, there is going to be some pain along the way. And as the years slip by, the response to that pain is to build brick walls; boundaries that protect … and yet isolate. That’s why so many marriages are not all they could be.

It seems to me that God didn’t set any boundaries with you and me. I can’t imagine how much I’ve hurt Him over the years and yet, His response was to let Jesus suffer and die to knock down the walls built up by sin and rebellion, so that you and I could be close to Him. Maybe that’s not such a bad model for marriage. What do you think?

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, it is not selfish, and it cannot be made angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it. Love is never happy when others do wrong, but it is always happy with the truth. Love never gives up on people. It never stops trusting, never loses hope, and never quits. Love will never end.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
