eSeed: United or Untied

Read Ephesians 5:22-33

If you change the position of one letter in the word “united,” you get another word, “untied.” That letter is “I.”

One couple was about to be untied. The wife prayed, “Lord, please take one of us home to heaven, so I can go and live with my mother.”

The root of most problems between the husband and wife is sin, and the root of all sin is selfishness.

When the love of the husband for his wife is sacrificial, and she loves her husband in a satisfying way, they’ll overcome selfishness.

As they submit to the Lord and each other, they’ll live for each other and for the Lord. Then they’ll stay united.

Prayer: We commit to Thee, heavenly Father, our lives and our loved ones. Take away our selfishness and arm our
wills with Thy strength. Fill our hearts with Thy love so that we will always trust Thee and be more like Thee each day: through Christ. Amen.
