Love Season P2

1 John 4:19

We love because he first loved us.

Love is “ blind ”, and marriage is the “ eye opener. ”

Should we assume that taking our spouse “ for granted “ and allowing the relationship to “ plateau “ is normal?

“ Valentine “ — the object of one’s affection.

Prov. 16:18

Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.

Pride will ruin our “ relationship “

Pride — vanity, self-importance, hubris, conceit, conceitedness, self-love, self-adulation, self-admiration, narcissism, egotism, superciliousness, haughtiness, snobbery, snobbishness;

“ Pride “ — a haughty attitude shown by somebody who believes, often unjustifiably, that he or she is better than others.

Before we can “ love “ like God, we must understand His love for us.

God’s love means that God “ eternally “ gives of Himself to “ others. “

1 Cor 13.4-7

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love seeks to “ make “ happy rather than to “ be “ happy.

Hope everyone had a Happy Valentine’s Day
