True Love
by James Henderson


True LoveHello,

My wife and I watched a movie recently about a woman who, on occasion, poisoned her husband slightly as an expression of love towards him. I’m not going to spoil it for you by saying which film it was, or what happened in the end.

I hope it does not give anyone ideas for Valentine’s Day! But, in the words of a 1970’s TV detective drama, let’s be careful out thereā€¦

How can true love be defined? The Bible gives an idea, and it relates to how Jesus Christ expressed his love to humanity. It tells married couples to love each other by putting the needs and interests of our partner before our own. A mutual self-giving. It sounds a bit dramatic, I know, but husbands should be willing to lay down their lives for their wives, and vice versa, just as Jesus sacrificed himself for all of us.

Of course, we don’t need a special day to celebrate love. Every day is a day to show, not only that special someone but also to others around you, that you love him or her.

Why not begin today?

Just as Jesus put us first before himself, why not put someone else before you and your needs?

Best regards,
James
