Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT
Love does not think about responsibilities, but about the needful!
Love goes for the needful.
Yes we might have delegated responsibilities and roles to ourselves as man and woman! We might have acknowledge our cultural ideologies, but we are first Christians before our ethnic groups comes in.
We live by higher principle’s! Gods principle’s not human rules and regulations!
Love only thinks about the needful not responsibilities.
If she was the one who messed up and still refused to acknowledge her mistake, you won’t say she must be the one that must apologize to you because she offended you. Hey because you are concerned about the needful which is your relationship (or marriage) you’ll make peace!
People will say you are stupid, God will say you are matured and perfect!
Yes it might be her responsibility to do the dishes, she might come home late, you don’t have to wait for her to come back and do the dishes! Love only looks at the needful. You do the dishes!
While we were yet still sinners, Jesus died for us! He didn’t wait at all, he died for us..
Love only thinks of the needful.
Eph.5.25 And you husbands must love your wives with the same love Christ showed the church. He gave up his life for her.
Eph.5.26 to make her holy and clean, washed by baptism and God’s word. (NLT)
While studying this scripture I found out that love has nothing to do with roles and responsibilities.
We were given the responsibility to not sin, to be holy and righteous through the law but we couldn’t keep The law
It’s not God who sinned but man, do you know we were supposed to live for God not God living for us!
But he didn’t look at our responsibility to live for him he died and made us holy
Love is not about roles and rules but about what is needed..
