What Love Really Means At Home: Part-2


Verse 21 – courteously reverent – applies to all Christians, especially husband and wife.

Verse 23 – cherish – to hold dear, to esteem, to value highly

Verse 24 – submit – God’s thoughts: to yield one’s own rights – to put others ahead of your own. Doews not connote obedience – word obey does not appear in scripture with respect to wives, only children. (DEB’S THOUGHTS)

Verse 25 – A love marked by giving not getting

Verse 26 – Christ’s love makes the church (US) whole. His word evoke her beauty – words are powerful – God calls us to build each other up!

Verse 28 – One in marriage – one flesh – physically, emotionally, and spirituallty

Verse 33 – Love her, honor him. Greatest needs addressed by this thought –

women: security and stability

men: to be honored and respected

Ephesians 6: 1-4

“Children, do what your parents tell you. This is only right. ‘Honor your father and mother’ is the first commandment that has a promise attached to it, namely, ‘so you will live well and have a logn life.’

Fathers, don’t exasperate your children by coming down hard on them.

Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the master.”

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 (NLT) – Love keeps no record of wrongs.

  • “Love is patient and kind.
  • Love is not jealous or boastful of proud or rude.
  • Love does not demand its own way.
  • Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.
  • It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
  • Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance.”

The NIV says…”Love keeps no records of wrongs – alway protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.
