Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ bringing you a positive message minute.

Wow, I love my wife!  Do you want to know how I know that I love my wife?  Let me tell you a quick story.  

Topher in 2003
Fifteen years ago I had the perfect setting to propose.  A blanket in the park, comfort food, mood music, a bouquet of roses, and a ring hidden inside one of the roses.  While the sappy music about love was playing, I dropped to one knee, grabbed the rose with the ring…. And panicked!  The ring wasn't in the rose!  She saw the look on my face and knew I had botched this one.  I began frantically searching the grass around us looking for that precious symbol of love that had fallen out of the rose!  Eventually, I found it, and even though I'm a blundering idiot sometimes, she said yes

How do I know I love her?  Is it because I gave her a symbol of love, a ring?

Jesus spoke of it this way in Luke 7 about a woman who was a sinner, "Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven--as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little."

The best evidence of my love for my beautiful bride isn't what I give her, but in my response to how much she has forgiven me! 

Consider how much you've been forgiven in life and show your love to those who forgive you.  You'll be glad you did.
