We have heat-seeking missiles, but a love that is self-seeking hones in on its own destruction. Love gives.
They say it is give-and-take, but if it is to survive, it must give more than it takes. Stop trying to get out of your spouse more. Start trying to give more.
1 Cor. 13:5 says: Love is not self-seeking.

I’m not talking about “losing yourself” in love. That’s easy.
I’m talking about getting rid of self-importance, putting others first, giving of yourself and not minding if no one takes note. Yeah, not standing up for your rights.
Perhaps this is the hardest. Satan’s temptation to Eve and Adam was to put themselves first: God was being a killjoy not letting them “become like Him knowing good and evil.” Wow, that’s alluring, to be like God!
Don’t degrade the human race’s father and mother though. We all do it every day.
LOL! This picture is so funny. Thanks: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+Sanitaryum/posts “I wish I could lose weight as easily as I lose my keys, my pen, my cell phone, my temper and even my mind.” That’s a good laugh.
But it’s sobering to think about losing self. Help me, Jesus.
