I Love You More

Written by: Dr. Whitaker, Head of School

 

I don’t remember when it began. However, somewhere early in our marriage, Tricia and I began a light-hearted verbal duel. When one of us said, “I love you” the other one would say, “I love you more.” In such a contest, there’s no loser – we both win!

 

Tricia is a big fan of the show Downton Abbey. Recently, she ran across a quote from the show that made both of us smile. Cora Crowley says to her husband Robert, “When I say I love you more, I don’t mean I love you more than you love me. I mean, I love you more than the bad days that are ahead. I love you more than any fight we will ever have. I love you more than any distance that might separate us. I love you more than any obstacle that could ever come between us. I love you the most.”

 

The Bible paints a beautiful picture of this kind of love in I Corinthians 13. Before the Valentine’s Day roses begin to wilt and the warm sentiments of this past weekend begin to fade, take a few minutes with your spouse by your side to read this passage of Scripture. And, for the rest of 2016, I challenge you to begin the light-hearted verbal dual above at least once a day. You’ll be glad you did and there will be no hard feelings over “who started it.”

 

Sincerely,
