How hard should you fight for your family?

family, forgive, love, fight forMy answer would be, “As hard as we fight in a war!  To the death!!”

The reason I say this is because I have been married for almost 27 years.  It has not always been easy but I can say, looking back, it has been worth everything I have put into it.  After this amount of time I look at my spouse as a part of me.  She is more important than myself.  I don’t think you can understand until you have been with someone this long.  I have been with my spouse longer than I lived with my mom, dad, and siblings.  I have experienced so much with her.  I have lost family and friends, experienced events,  traveled to various parts of the world, and even experienced the birth of our children and watched them grow up.  Wow, what a blessing!

The point of this is that in our world today, we add and drop relationships like we would buy a pack of gum at the store.  This is how  a lot of people act. Sadly, I don’t think that  they will ever see the joy of what life has to offer with what I would call true love.  To be with someone that knows you and loves you no matter what, is an awesome experience!

But Ruth said, “Don’t force me to leave you; don’t make me go home. Where you go, I go; and where you live, I’ll live. Your people are my people, your God is my god; where you die, I’ll die, and that’s where I’ll be buried, so help me God—not even death itself is going to come between us!”  Ruth 1:16-17 (MSG)

This passage is used in weddings today.  It is a passage that talks about what I think should be in relationships!  No matter if it is your spouse, close friend, kids, or whoever…

Do you forgive?  Do you love the way you want to be loved?  Do you fight for what you should be fighting for?  Do you protect the family both in words and actions?
