Love different. Love not on what your eyes see. Love on what your eyes do not see. These lines was mentioned by the pastor after wrapping up the topic about love in the church service I attended this afternoon. Really true, in our generation now, we easily caught up by the charm and beauty on the outside. The also reason why most of the marriage in our time do not last. The pastor sites some example of Hollywood icons who have all the looks, fame, money and power who married of their same. Has the looks and the money but after a few months decided to call it quits.
Hollywood stars like Katy Perry and Russell Brand whose marriage lasted only for 14 months. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries marriage lasted for 72 days. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline which marriage lasted for 55 hours. Many would say that because marriage for them is not a big deal, and in my opinion it is a big deal maybe the reason why they come up to tie the knots to have exclusive right on each other. But because the basis of their marriage is more of physical attraction which when joined together in one house , they discover attitude and character of each one that they cannot accept so they find a way out.
There is nothing wrong in physical attraction, it becomes wrong when we do not give time ourselves to know the person's character in the inside.
Like what the bible says in Proverbs 31:30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting ; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. and in 1peter 3:3-4 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment,such as braided hair and wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.
