B. B. Warfield: Loving through thick and thicker

Gents, you've heard me say over and over (and over and over) that loving our woman depends not one iota upon what she can give in return. In his blog, Randy Alcorn discusses the life of the great theologian Benjamin B. Warfield. This is a man who did not sacrifice his marriage on the altar of ministry.

Soak it in here.

Here's where many go astray, they think that marriage is not "Kingdom work," that training up your children is not "Kingdom work," and that toiling in the field as a farmer or behind the desk as an accountant or in the classroom as a teacher is not "Kingdom work." Whether we eat or drink or whatever we do, we are to do all to the glory of God. When we give a cup of water to the least of these, we have done so to our Lord and Savior.

So love your wife with the love of Christ, with over-the-top, lavish, ridiculous love--all to the glory of God!
