Law vs. Love

Well, we are on a lot of airplanes because of the work we do. Yeah, this time we encountered an unusual thing – the rule keeping flight attendant. Boy, I have seen a more legalistic person in my life. Apparently, you can’t hold a magazine in your lap for takeoff. It was unbelievable and it just rubbed us the wrong way and we got to talking about the difference between grace and that spirit of keeping the law. Well, especially as it applies to relationships, not just flying in airplanes. Right? Absolutely, marriage is miserable if your spouse can’t understand that there need to be exceptions and a lot of forgiveness along the way. Friend, think about that in your own marriage and don’t allow the law to outweigh love. Don’t allow rules to overtake your relationship.
