The Paradox

Greg & Julie Marriage Your Marriage Moment

“I have found the paradox.  That if I love until it hurts then there is no hurt, only love.”

~ Bl. Mother Teresa

 

Reflections:

  1. How much am I willing to hurt for my spouse?  How much was Jesus willing to hurt for us?  Did he put limits on his love for us?
  2. Do I believe that there is a redeeming value by persevering through hurt and pain in my marriage or do I run away from it? (i.e. infidelity, unforgiveness, negative speech)
  3. Do you understand that when we run from the hurt and pain in our marriage, we lose the opportunity to unite our sufferings with that of Jesus on the cross? (This does not include mental and physical abuse.)
