Sentences and Sandwiches
Is the 2% milky smooth "falling in love" feeling still what is sought after in marriage? or does the "ball and chain" cut off circulation after a while?
Is the 'finishing of sentences' the pinnacle, or does God have deeper ways for couples to connect? On the flip side -- do acts of service in the simplest requests to one another stay strong, or does time take its toll in breeding familiarity?
The Bible calls a Man and Woman to become 1 flesh (Gen 2:24) and another call is also made for love and honor (Eph 5:33).
May this clip on Sentences / Sandwiches serve as a reminder of (1) the depth God calls us to grow in marriage, as well as (2) the work of "growing in love" instead of "falling" into it -- to ensure the marital honor tank stays full.
31 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall be joined [and be faithfully devoted] to his wife, and the two shall become [e]one flesh. 32 This mystery [of two becoming one] is great; but I am speaking with reference to [the relationship of] Christ and the church. 33 However, each man among you [without exception] is to love his wife as his very own self [with behavior worthy of respect and esteem, always seeking the best for her with an attitude of lovingkindness], and the wife [must see to it] that she respects and delights in her husband [that she notices him and prefers him and treats him with loving concern, treasuring him, honoring him, and holding him dear]. [Eph 5:31-33]
