Religious Relationships: What does the Bible say about love and relationships?
Religious Relationships - Religion and Relationships -: The Bible tells us in so many ways to love one another as human beings and to love our partners - particularly for men to love their wives.
Once married, man and woman become one. By loving your spouse, you are actually loving yourself. An instruction to Love your spouse is a huge favour from God, that's why we need to pay attention to our 'religious relationships' by following what the scriptures say. Our romantic relationships need to be religiously complacent & compliant.
Show your love and devotion for each other. If you are religious, this shouldn't be difficult. It is sad to see how badly some of the leaders in our churches treat their spouses once they live the church building. It is important to realise that the greatest sermon we can ever preach is not spoken, It is lived! Love your Wife; Love your Husband; especially behind closed doors, when no one is watching - when it is not an act. I like this Tunisian Proverb, "Reputation is what you are in the light, Character is what you are in the dark."
