Marriage is difficult enough when a couple is equally yoked! The concept that “love conquers all” sounds great, but it is not reality, when it comes to living as a Christian couple. Yes, love covers a multitude of sins (I Peter 4:8 “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”) Yes, we can “get along” with someone who does not share each and every one of our values. But, are you willing to settle for less than God’s perfect match for your helpmate for life?
My husband likes to tell people that I am his “rib.” He believes that, and so do I. The sort of deep love Peter is referring to is a love that sees the other person literally through the eyes of God. When you look at your sweetheart as though you are looking through God’s eyes, you will see what He sees. This makes all the difference in a marriage! God has nothing less than amazing in mind for you and your husband or wife. Why would anyone settle for less?
