Love is a commitment; it’s a long term commitment. It’s not temporary. It’s not lusting; it’s not a fad and it’s not a passing moment. Love is a genuine commitment. I know a couple who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary last year. Do you think they had times where they didn’t agree? Do think they experienced some frustrations with each other over those years? Do you think they had times where they thought it just wasn’t worth it anymore?

I talked to him for a while and before I asked him the question I thought surely he will admit that he’s not a good person, but he didn’t. I asked him if he was a good person and he said yes, he was. I reminded him that he had just told me that he served three years in prison for stealing a car.

We see warning signs all around. There are traffic signs that say STOP, YIELD, DO NOT ENTER, WRONG WAY, ONE WAY and CONSTRUCTION AHEAD to name a few. Some household products have poison warning labels on them. We are told to watch for the warning signs for a heart attack, stroke or Alzheimer’s.
