Is it true love? Take the true love quiz!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
True Love Quiz
Directions: Read each question and answer Yes or No. Give 2 points for every yes answer. Subtract 1 point for each no answer. Add and/ or subtract points to find out if this is true love.
9-12 points = It’s strong like leading to true love!
5-8 points = You need to rethink this relationship.
0-4 points = Definitely not true love. Toxic relationship. Break up now.
Do those quiz questions sound familiar to you? Where is that found? In the love chapter of the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13! You are correct.
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthian 13: 4-7 NLT
The true love quiz is just a fun thing to do. It’s not a real quiz that can tell us if we have definitely found true love. However, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 is how Jesus love is for us and how we should truly love others. These scriptures are a guide for how we are to love others. I say guide because we are imperfect people and we may do some of the negative or opposite things of love (I know I have) to our loved ones. When we do those negative things, we need to check ourselves and get back on the right path of true love. We need to stay mindful of how we love others.
Although that quiz is for fun, there is truth in it. If you took the quiz and realized that you answered many no’s, you may be in an unhealthy relationship. A relationship that adds value to our lives, should be positive and life affirming; not negative and draining. A good relationship is healthy, if it’s not healthy than it’s not going the way God created relationships.
Do you want to find true love? Jesus’ love is the ultimate true love. He is ready to fill your heart, body, soul and spirit with his unfailing love. All you need to do is trust and believe that Jesus is Lord. No one can truly love the way Jesus loves us. Thank you, Jesus for your true unfailing love!
Happy Valentine’s day! May you experience the grace, mercy, comfort, peace and ultimate true love of Jesus now and forever. Amen.

Marriage series pt3: sacrifice
The last of the Marriage Series focuses on sacrifice. When we are truly in love there are sacrifices that we are willing to make. The blog post What Love Is goes into love and its characteristics, listen to that again if you need a reminder.
As I have said before in previous posts; love should never hurt you physically or emotionally. It is not a healthy relationship when one is manipulative, abusive (emotional and physical), selfish, bullies, etc. I pray you don’t even get close to someone like that (see healthy relationship post for more info and free tool). Literally dying because of someone is not the sacrifice you want to make. If you are in a domestic abuse situation, call the National Domestic Violence Helpline now at 1-800-799-7233.
To sum it up, the marriage covenant is very similar to the New Covenant and its Peacemaker, Jesus. Jesus is God’s covenant with us. Jesus is the blood covenant that covers our sins and forgives us, the gate to heaven. (There is so much more on that subject that I would be writing for days! That will be a future post.)
“It puts the law within us, writes it on our hearts
It makes God our God, and us his people.
We will know the Lord – small or great in the eyes of others –
We will know him!
Our iniquities will be forgiven; our sin remembered no more!”1 (see Hebrews 8:10 – 12 NASB).
