We get these breaded fish fillets at Sam’s Club that I just love.
One afternoon I was bit by the munchies and went looking for the chocolate chip cookies my wife and kids had baked the night before. I walked into the kitchen, saw that we had leftover fish, and forgot about the cookies. That’s how much I love this fish.
It strikes me that this may be a good measure of how much you love something or someone – what do you give up for them?
I often give up something I’d like to do and do something I don’t want to do – to be with my wife. I often watch tv shows that make me contemplate suicide – to be with my kids.
For love of my wife I’ve given up other women, independent control of my time and finances, and the freedom to dress myself.
What do I give up for love of God?
