Christian love affairs

Expressed biblically, the kind of commitment I have in mind here is a couples’ mutual commitment to build each other up, unfailingly and truthfully, as a way of honoring God in the other. It is a commitment to build each other up as persons of sacred worth, created in God’s own image as bearers of a shared calling to love and work with the well-being of all God’s creatures uppermost in mind.

Methodist theologian LeRoy Howe of Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, writing in his weekly column, Howe About: LoveThat Outlasts Marriage
