Love is wonderful, isnít it? Love is the center of every good thing. How wonderful it is to love and to be loved! But thereís a serious problem with what people think love is about.

Many people think love is just, ďHow can I breathe without you? I canít live without you! Iím nothing without you!Ē Yea, right! The only One who should be worshipped this way is God because He is our everything, not man.

Emotions are vital in relationships. Without them, weíd be robots. But sometimes we have to put our feelings aside and really use our brains. To marry someone based on feelings alone is unwise.

Think about it, this person that youíre committing to is not perfect. Sometimes it wonít be easy to love this person. We all have our unlovable moments. So what will you do if your husband is not being as attentive as youíd like him to be? What if he neglects to tell you how beautiful you are? What if he is a bit rude and snappy today? What if your wife gained 100 lbs.? What if she lost her hair due to sickness? What if she canít cook like your mama?

For all of the singles looking to marry please put your emotions aside for a while. There will be times in marriage when youíre honestly not feeling the love, and thatís when you have to remember and honor your vows.

Men, make sure that this woman is willing to stand by your side at all times. Make sure she will support you and respect you. Make sure that she is willing to take care of your needs. Women, make sure this man shares a similar vision as yours. Donít deny yourself just to please him while youíre dating, because once you marry, he will be the head of the household. Make sure heís stronger than you spiritually, because God expects him to lead the family.

1 Corinthians 11:3
But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

Letís not make rash decisions to marry. Please take the time to pray and read the personís character before you commit. Love is a choice, not a feeling.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
