LOVE WITHOUT REASON OR CONDITION

Bible Text: Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. (Ephesians 5:25-27)

Wherever there is a reason, there is a condition. Wherever there is a condition, there is expectation.

Dr. Myles Munroe said he estimated that 99% of all the problems in relationships have to do with expectation. For instance, consider the condition: “As a husband, I expect you to cook for me.” What happens when you both work from nine to five, and she is exhausted when you get home?

Expectation guarantees disappointment.

Consider another scenario. Suppose a man married a woman for her sleek curves, and she married him for his well-defined physique. What happens after ten years and three children? She cannot get her curves back, and his chest has dropped into his stomach. If the physical appearance was the reason for love, there is going to be disappointment.

Disappointment leads to division, which leads to divorce. Divorce can take place in any type of relationship and not just marriage.

Love without reason or condition, examine your motive for loving others and destroy these conditions because reason runs the risk of destroying your relationships.
