What I Deserve

He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. Psalm 103:10

The world is full of broken hearts.  Their hearts are broken because their husband/wife, girlfriend/boyfriend was not what they expected to be.  They wanted this, but got that.  They expected it like this, but it turned out completely not how they planned.

People begin to see all the negative sides of a person, and decide “Well, I deserve way better than that.  I’m such a good person, and I don’t get treated the way I want and deserve to be treated.”

Too many books, movies, and magazines teach that.  They teach that if something doesn’t work out, you go and find something better.  After all, we live one life and we have to get the most out of it.

But that is a lie Satan uses.  He wants to break up families.  He wants to destroy anything that has to do with family.  What God created is exactly what the Devil wants to get rid of.  He lies that you can find someone better, but in reality, the next “perfect person” will also have just as many imperfections.  If not more.

But the Liar knows that blessings come to those who follow His Word.  Those who forgive, those who love without limits.  Those who humble themselves.

For our sin, we deserve nothing but eternal punishment.  But Jesus’ love gives us life.  It gives us a chance to spread the love to those around us.  To our spouses, our children, or neighbors, coworkers, and even random people on the street.  Not because they deserve it.  But because Jesus paved the way for unconditional love.

Him+Her Talk

Thank your spouse for their unconditional love.
