Love grows. Love matures. Love can be messy.
When I engage in marriage prep, I love to use love stories. I recall an interview I heard on National Public Radio years ago. NPR was doing a series on marriage, and they interviewed an older married woman about her marriage. The interviewer asked, “Was it love at first sight?” The woman answered, “No. But it is now.”
She revealed that her love for her husband had evolved.
Let’s take a look at the situation of Martha and Mary.
Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.The Lord said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.”
