8-4-2017 Real Love Relationship

“So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed only a few days to him because of the love he had for her” (Genesis 29:20 NKJV). Jacob worked 7 years for Rachel’s father in order to marry her. This was true love, not hormone-driven sex! Movies, television, and music in our day dwell on the fleeting moments of sexual passion and call it “love.” Little wonder, then, that many shape their lives around what they think is “love.” Amnon said he “loved” his half-sister, Tamar, and he raped her. “Then Amnon hated her exceedingly, so that the hatred with which he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her. And Amnon said to her, ‘Arise, be gone!’” (2 Samuel 13:15 NKJV). Is your relationship like Jacob or Amnon: for “love” or “sex?”
