“Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband” (1 Corinthians 7:3) NKJV.
Across the large and sprawling church foyer came an elderly couple. Married many, many years, Marcus and Kathleen slowly walked toward the worship center. Jack couldn’t help but notice the many smiles of people glancing in their direction. Marcus and Kathleen always held hands as they walked along. They didn’t do it for show. They simply loved each other and weren’t embarrassed to show it. “I’ve held Kathleen’s hand for nearly sixty years now. Our hands seem to just fit pretty good,” Marcus would say. It might not be good grammar, but it was good married living. If you are married, show the affection due your spouse. Go on. You can do it!
For today: Thank You for loving us, Father. Thank You for making it possible for us to love others and show it.
