Preferential Treatment

10 01 2008

I spoke at the wedding of a good friend of mine this past weekend and one of the Scriptures I read from Ephesians 5:25 resonates with a key to Better Life:

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her.”

The context is that when a couple gets married, the husband’s love for his wife should be so expressive and evident that he would lay down his life to save her if the situation called for it. What a wake-up call for so many of us men to raise the level of tangible evidence of our love of the one we married.

The principle is applicable beyond just marriage relationships and really should be our standard for any and all human interaction. We show love to our God by showing love to our spouses, friends, family and anyone we encounter.

Maintaining a mentality of preferential treatment of others over ourselves is a theraputic way to (BE)TTER in every area of daily life.
