A maried couple (inte Kristna) is having a hard time in their mariage. They don’t respect Eachother, they both are selfish and doesn’t care about the other ones needs. The woman wants to get i divorce. He’s angry at her and doesn’t feel any motivation to not proceed with the divorce.
But he realise that he doesn’t want to divorce so he starts to buy her flowers, do the dishes and cook dinner, etc. But she ignore him, and even tell him that she doesn’t love him anymore. the man gets angry. He say that she is ungrateful, doesn’t respect him, etc.
He talk with his father and tell him about everything.
-But have you loved god? The one that gave you life? His dad asks.
-Dad,What about all good i’ve done?
–God doesnt judge by that. He don’t judge by your standards, he judge by his. If I asked you why your so frustrated with your wife, what would you say?
–I even made dinner for her and she spat at my face! She does not deserve this! Im not doing this anymore! How am i suppose to show love to someone that constantly rejects me!?
The father looks at the wooden cross that’s behind them and say:
-That’s a good question.
The son looks down on the ground and says:
– d-dad, thats not what im doing. Im not doing to god what my wife does to me!
Dad answers: You don’t? Son, you just asked me. How can you show love to someone that constantly rejects me? The answer is, you can’t love her, cause you can’t give her what you don’t have. I couldn’t truly love your mother till i understood what love really was. It’s not because i get some reward out of it. I’ve now made a decision to love your mother, whether she deserves it or not. Son, god loves you even though you don’t deserve it. Even though you’ve rejected him. Spat at his face. God sent jesus to die on the cross and take the punishment for your sin. – because he loves you. Jesus christ changed my life. That’s when i truly began to love your mom. Son, i can’t settle this for you, this is between you and the lord. But i love you to much to not tell the truth. Can’t you see that you need him? Can’t you see that you need his forgivess?
