Everyday men and women enter into relationships and marriages hoping for the best. Only to be astonished when they realize that the person responsible for ruining their marriage or sabotaging their relationship was the man or woman in the mirror. They were unprepared for love… but they had no idea.
Are you ready for love? Find out by taking this critically appraised self-examination.
When it comes to love, sex, relationships and marriage, most men and women take the position, “Ready or not, here I come!” They will dive into a relationship or marriage with little or absolutely no preparation. At best they are drawing straws. At worst they are rolling the dice. The statistics prove that the majority of men and women who gamble at love will eventually lose. Don’t wager with your love life.
In II Corinthians 13:5, we are commanded to examine ourselves. This self-examination is crucial if you intend on finding and experiencing True Love. This examination entails fifteen key tests to help you and a potential mate determine if you are actually ready for love. The test starts now!
1. Do You Know What True Love Is?
“I love you!” “I love you too!” Most people who express those heartfelt words have no idea what True Love is. I regularly meet men and women who claim they have been in love three or more times in their life. They met someone, fell in love, broke up with them and repeated that sequence of events with numerous lovers. One woman told me she had been in love with eight different men. She married and divorced four of them. What they didn’t know about love is that True Love never ends.
If what they had were True Love, it wouldn’t have ended. They’d still be together, (See I Corinthians 13).
How does one define True Love and who sets the standard? The Lord God defines what True Love is and He alone set the standard for love. It is only through His Word can we learn what True Love is.
If you obtained your definition or interpretation about love from any source, you have been misled, (See I Thessalonians 4:9).
