Proverbs 5:18-19, NKJV “Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth. As a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times; And always be enraptured with her love.”
To have an exceptional marriage you will have to know what real Biblical love is. The purpose of marriage is to sharpen you. Your spouse is to be your best friend and lover.
3 types of Love:
- Eros Love – a need love. Based on physical attraction and fulfillment; marriages can’t be sustained by eros love.
- Phileo Love – a friendship love.
- Agape Love – a giving love; one loves even when the other doesn’t respond as expected.
Agape Love + Phileo Love + Eros Love = Godly marriages that will last.
You cannot have an exceptional relationship apart from an exceptional relationship with God. Exceptional is doing life together with Jesus being the center of your relationship. Don’t camouflage your selfishness with the words “I’m right.” Forgiveness is not weakness; it is the portal to POWER. Forgive the other person before they ask.
