Selfless Love

I believe the romantic love celebrated on Valentine’s Day is something to continually weave throughout a marriage, not just one day of the year. Yet Hallmark cards leave out an important word when celebrating romance . . .  the word sacrifice.

Demonstrating daily love towards a spouse requires surrender, serving, and giving of ourselves when it is least convenient. In the case of the man in this video, he demonstrated his love by risking his to save his wife and their child under the most dire circumstances–the civil war in the Ivory Coast. This is the kind of marital love of which God speaks.

I pray you find the message behind this video and enjoy it as much as I did.
