Good Quote 11/12/12

I read this quote today that I think can be applied to any relationship: boyfriend/girlfriend, child/parent, friends, etc.

Love …”as to the Lord”

     “Love motivated by mere duty cannot hold out for very long.  And love that is only motivated by favorable conditions can never be assured of sufficient oxygen to keep it breathing.  Only love that is lifted up as an offering to God- returned to Him in gratitude for all He’s done- is able to sustain itself when all other reasons have lost their ability to energize us.

Those who are fine with mediocre marriages [relationships] can leave their love to chance and hope for the best.  But if you are committed to giving your spouse [friend, child, parent, boyfriend/girlfriend] the best love you possibly can, you need to shoot for love’s highest motivation.  Love that has God as its primary focus is unlimited in the heights it can attain.” Stephen and Alex Kendrick, The Love Dare
