Most of us have probably heard the story of the woman in the Bible with the alabaster box. She came to Jesus as herself, with the box…where she washed his feet her tears, dried them with her hair and dried them with expensive oil.
This woman was humble. This was her being the person she really was at the core of her being. It is obvious there is no pretense in her actions. She is doing it simply because she loves Jesus…
The model of marriage is based upon the relationship that Christ had with his church…And it is an unselfish love (think about it…he gave his life…)
Lately around the blog world I’ve been checking out a lot of blogs which more or less beg the question what does each person have to offer?
I have read about a couple who love each unconditionally. They obviously take each other to a higher level and I find with this kind of love you move yourself and what is in your box to a whole new level. The thing I have most come to realize is that there has to be something inside of your alabaster box that allows you to love this way. Something, somewhere has to allow you to remove the garments of bitterness and put down those bags and welcome love. However, when you welcome it you have to be willing to accept the challenges that come with it…regardless of how much you actually have to give of yourself.
What I mean here is…all possessions aside, the only thing we all have is ourselves…what better gift to give another person than the gift of you and the contents of that beautiful box (whether male of female)
When you sit your box on the table (because you must bring it to the table), what things are you prepared to offer your future mate? Do you know what’s inside of it for sure or is it more a Pandora’s box type thing where everything coming out may or may not be good? What would you like to see in the box of your mate? And do you find it hard to wanna open your box-is it under lock and key?
I’m just curious…
