They Love Each Other

He could pass his time
'round some other line
But you know he chose this place beside her
Don't get in the way
there's nothing you can say,
Nothing thay you needto add or do
They love each other
Lord, you can see it's true
by Hunter/Garcia

jacob meets rachel and immediately falls in love. IAW the culture of his day, he speaks to her father who assures him he can have her as his wife. he is told he must serve his father in law for 7 years b4 he can marry her.

7 years!!!!

and they seemed like just a few days to him because of the love he had for her.

they love each other.

What is love? "love is kind, does not envy,patient..." so it goes in the Bible but how about a love that confronts sin, repetitive sin, one that harms the ones you love, by one you love? God loves us and yet withholds or removes things from our lives sometimes to our detriment without explaining why...why?

love must confront...the bible also says "speak the truth in love". we often have to confront sin...repitive sin, sin that harms people...and i will again-when it is w/in our body of believers. but w/o knowing about that sin, i (we)can't. you can always email me off list if you would like to address that further.

wow, P.Mike, see you don't have the answer. Your answers don't touch a closed mind and your medicine only addresses the pain, the symptoms, not the illness. An illness can't be treated if the person refuse treatment and we are only ones living in the fallout of anothers illness and reacting in kind. So...thanks but no thanks it just seems like another bitter to swallow.

you said:

>>An illness can't be treated if the person refuse treatment<<

that was exactly my point.

>>your medicine only addresses the pain<<

God's medicine heals the human heart like nothing else can...would someone like to testify, please?

He sure does Take it from someone who had many things wrong. When I finialy relized that I (or any peoson for that matter) could not "FIX" it I took it to the Lord and guess what? He did fix it! Maybe not the way I had been thinking but His way. At any rate it worked. So maybe give pmike a try and I know I will be praying for you.
