Many marriages start of with what is called the honeymoon stage: where both individuals are filled with excitement and ecstatic emotions. Arguably, one might not notice the flaws or undesirable attributes in the other until after this phase expires. However, it is in my opinion (based on my large amount of experience…) that this stage of the relationship is the most desirable state. As pointed out by Oswald Chambers in today’s reading from My Utmost for His Highest, God desires for us to return to the time when we first fell in love with him. In Jeremiah 2:2, He recalls the love of our betrothal. While God has no flaws to discover, both relationships pay no regard to selfish desires or interests. The honeymoon stage is a time of full devotion and admiration and selfless love.
