Love Does…Love Does Not – January 10th, 2021

Hi, this is pastor Ken, thanks for joining me for my Monday Marriage Message…Love Does…Love Does Not…

1 Corinthians 13:4-8, &13 reads as follows: Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails… And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

As an elementary school boy, I remember watching one of my cousins at a summer camp we attended each year with my grandparents. As we stood there in the yard of my grandparents’ lake house, she pulled the petals from a flower she had picked moments before. “He loves me…He loves me not…He loves me…He loves me not.” She was certain that flower would be able to reveal if his love for her existed…or not, whoever he was.

This scripture gives us a much better chance of deciphering if true love exists than that flower ever had the ability to do. I doubt that flower ever revealed anything, and I imagine the love it was supposed to affirm was extinguished before the end of the week. In contrast, the scripture above will endure forever, and will be capable of determining true love throughout eternity. Go ahead…put it to the test.

Love suffers long – Love doesn’t quit when the going gets tough. Real love will stand by even when it must do so for prolonged periods of time with little or no reciprocity. It is an act of selflessness and therefore isn’t in it for what it can get, but rather for what it can give.

Love is kind – Love is considerate of others. Love chooses kindness as its carrier. Love flows easily in words and acts of kindness, especially when they are unexpected or unwarranted. If true love exists…it will always be kind.

Love does not envy – Real love will allow another to be honored or exalted and be happy for them and not reserve joy because they may have been overlooked.

Love does not parade itself; it is not puffed up – Love is selfless, true love is interested in others being affirmed. It does not seek to make a name for itself. True love does not desire to be the center of attention but rather relishes the chance to place another above self.

Love does not behave rudely – When one acts out of genuine love they will be courteous and considerate of the needs of those around them.

Love does not seek its own – Again, love is outward focused. It causes one to think of others’ well-being long before its own.

Love is not easily provoked – Not only will love hold its tongue and temper when irritated, it is willing to accept provocation, returning only gentleness and kindness, even if wronged.

Love does not think evil – Love does not assume poor intentions on the part of another. Even when harmed, real love looks for an explanation of extenuating circumstances rather than jumping to a conclusion of evil intent.

Love does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoices in the truth – Human nature is by default sinful. Love overrides the sinful desire to seek self-gratification at the cost of another. Love rejoices when truth prevails over the enemy’s lies designed to ensnare it.

Love bears all things – Love tries to stamp out the missteps of others rather than pointing them out. In so doing, it is forced to bear the wrongdoings of others in silence. While this can be difficult, it is one of the most powerful tools of conviction the Holy Spirit can use.

Love believes all things – Love makes every effort to give the benefit of the doubt when wronged. It chooses to believe when hurt, that the source of the hurt was not intentional.

Love hopes all things – Love always hopes that every offense between itself and another can be worked out. Love always tries to reconcile a broken relationship.

Love endures all things – Love understands that there are times when it will be ill-treated and it doesn’t look for a way to escape the relationship. True love knows that the only way for it to be proven is through remaining consistent.

Love never fails – God is eternal, God is love, ergo love is eternal. Love knows no bounds and has no end. Everything else in the world is someday going to pass away, some things much sooner than others, but true love, real love, has no expiration date.

The Greek language has three words for love. Eros – which is physical or erotic love. Phileo – which is fondness, affection, friendship love. Agape – the kind of love God has for us, and that we are to allow Him to show to others through us. All three are often present inside of the marital relationship. A marriage would not be much if it were only based on Eros. It would lack intimacy if it were only interested in displaying Phileo. If it does not contain Agape the other two forms of love will soon become selfish and inward thinking and inflict pain and damage onto the marriage. The only form of love that keeps the other two forms acting as they should is Agape love.

And now abide faith, hope and Agape, and the greatest of these, meaning the one that keeps everything else as it should be in healthy relationships whether they be between family, spouses or even us and God…is Agape.

In the weeks ahead we will look more closely at each of these characteristics of Agape love. I will attempt to define them better and give practical ways to see them instituted in marriage. I will also illustrate how they can increase the healthy display and acceptance of Eros and Phileo leading to a fuller marital love experience.

Questions to Answer:

1. Which of love’s characteristics listed above do you both think are being displayed well in your marriage?
2. Which do you think the two of you need to work to improve?
3. How can you hold yourselves and each other accountable to love as you should in ways that won’t breach these principles?

Actions to Take:

1. Ask God to help you love others in ways that are reflective of Him, beginning with your interactions with your spouse.
2. Tell your spouse of any areas God has made you aware of and commit to taking real steps toward remedying those attributes.

So now, holding the love you share with your spouse up to the standard of Agape love and learning to love your spouse in the ways God intends…Go be awesome!

Truths Considered In A Snowbank – January 6, 2022

Hi this is pastor Ken and these are my thoughts on the first Thursday of the new year…Truths Considered In A Snowbank.

No matter what part of the country you live in, mixed in among all the other Christmas Carols is the familiar line “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas”. This year that dream only missed us here in the State of Delaware by about a week. As the snow fell heavily this past Monday piling up at more than an inch an hour it quickly became evident it would not simply be the aesthetic wintry ground covering we have grown accustom to here in the Mid-Atlantic region. It was soon all-too-apparent that what we had on our hands was a beautiful mess that was soon going to need to be cleaned up. Having grown up in the snow-belt of Western New York State I am familiar with snow shoveling. There it is often a chore completed multiple times a week for several months of the year. As the snow fell and blew around, I knew I was soon to engage once again in that undesirable activity I had moved here to avoid.

As I shoveled I found myself having to take many breaks. Some were to spend a moment standing up strait and relieve the pain of my stooped position repeatedly lifting shovel full after shovel full of the snow only to move it 1 or 2 feet to the right or left of where it had been deposited. Sometimes I was finding that the breaks were to catch my breath that my labor seemed to be robing me of. There were times I simply stopped because I was tired and I was awaiting that ‘second wind’ my grandfather Brown used to speak of so often. I’m not sure where he always seemed to get his from, but there in the snow, mine didn’t seem to be appearing all that readily. As I stood there in that snowbank during one of those rest sessions, I began to consider some things.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 from the New Century Version reads as follows: So we do not give up. Our physical body is becoming older and weaker, but our spirit inside us is made new every day.  We have small troubles for a while now, but they are helping us gain an eternal glory that is much greater than the troubles. We set our eyes not on what we see but on what we cannot see. What we see will last only a short time, but what we cannot see will last forever.

As I shoveled snow, both Monday and Tuesday I became acutely aware that my physical body is in fact becoming older and weaker. There was a time it seems, not so long ago when a few hours spent shoveling snow would have been no big deal. Why then was it that as I did so this week it caused every muscle in my back and shoulders to scream out in protest? Why do they revolt and act as if on a sit down strike when I try to walk even yet today? Why? Because this body is made of flesh and bones and it has a definite shelf life. The good news? This old body is not what defines me! It is only the vehicle by which I move through this life. It has a limited usefulness, but what it contains is designed for eternal purposes!

The spirit inside becomes renewed every day. Each day there are new reasons to praise God. Each day is a new day to fulfill our eternal purpose by giving glory to the One who created us. Each day we get to live for the One who died for us. Each new day is a new set of opportunities to become more and more like Jesus. As we walk through this life, troubles abound…snow piles up, but though we need to give the troubles of this world our attention, our focus should be much farther down the road. The difficulties can have our attention in so much that we learn from them what our Heavenly Father desires for us to learn, but our focus is to be on the eternal, where the lessons are preparing us to reside. Heaven is our home, life here on earth is just the path we must travel that readies us to abide there.

I must admit it is easy to forget this truth, and get all caught up in the troubles and trials this life brings. It can be easy to take our focus off what it should be fixed on, and allow it to be swayed to a much shorter, temporal view. We can stare so intently at the problems that they begin to loom large and we lose our spiritually corrected vision. Paul is right to remind us that what we can see with our eyes, this life, and its difficulties, are only short term. What we can’t see with our physical eyes, but only with our eyes of faith, the view there goes on forever! That’s where our home is.

There is another song that I remember hearing and singing many times that restates this truth I was considering in that snowbank…I’ve got a mansion, just over the hilltop. In that bright land where we’ll never grow old. And someday yonder, we will never more wander, but walk on streets that are purest gold!

So now, recognizing and learning from the troubles of today, but keeping your focus firmly on your Heavenly Father’s promises for the future, allow your spirit to be made new each day and…Go be awesome!
