Saying I Love You
“Actions repeated form habits, habits form character, and by the character our destiny for time and for eternity is decided.”
“Only by faithfulness in the little things can the soul be trained to act with fidelity under larger responsibilities.”
“In the smallest as well as the largest affairs of life God desires us to reveal to men the principles pertaining to His kingdom.”
Our voice and tongue are gifts from God, and if rightly used, they are a power for God. Words mean a lot. Words may express love, devotions, praise sweet melody to God, or hatred and revenge. Words reveal the sentiments of your heart. Words may be a savor of life unto life or death unto death. The tongue is a world of blessing or a world of iniquity.
“I love you” is a common phrase among married couples and younger people today. Often it carries a disguised meaning with far-reaching and hurtful consequences and not so welcomed repercussions. It’s a special phrase when shared between two people who understand the true meaning of love; for a relationship has to be more than just words.
The Bible compares Christ’s love for the church to that of the love between a man and a woman. That is how profound God meant that love between a husband and a wife ought to be. It’s so special that He specifically stated that it was to be between a man and woman. Without His blessing, and without His sanctity upon your vows to each other there isn’t that true meaning when you say “I love you.” Make it a truly sincere expression by seeking Jesus to bless the love between you and your spouse. He will add the needed ingredient of compassion, so when you say “I love you” it’s beautiful, it’s meaningful, and it’s real (My thoughts with April 29, 2019, Collegiate Quarterly, p. 50).
