Yesterday I read something that talked about how conditional our love is for other people. We may distribute our love based on what someone is wearing or who they know. We might give them more if they can improve our life or less if they have hurt us. As I was reading, I realized that I am guilty of this conditional love not only in the world, but also in my marriage.
When Carl is super sweet and doing and saying all the right things it is easy for me to love him. But when he does something that makes me feel unloved, it is difficult for me to give him the same love. So today I want to go back to a passage that is read at many weddings from Ephesians 5.
