The Foundation Of Love Is Emotion, Personality, Beauty or Sex: Matthew 7:24-27
This is an erroneous belief because the foundation of love is not emotion, personality, beauty or sex - in other words, sources of pleasure. These things don't bring lasting happiness.
What is needed is Commitment, Character, and a Christ-like disposition (The 3Cs). These three qualities are the foundation of love because they alone can
withstand the storms of life while the sources of pleasure, though they contribute in building a relationship, cannot survive the storms of life.
An example can be seen in the story of the Wise and Foolish Builders as found in Matt.7:24-27. Those that will build their relationships and marriages on the foundation of the 3Cs will be like the Wise builders who built their houses on the rock because not only will they survive the storms but will also become more stronger.
While those that will build their relationships and marriages on the foundation of the sources of pleasure - emotion, personality, beauty or sex will be like the Foolish builders who built their houses on the sands because sources of pleasure alone cannot withstand the storms of life.
Christ Jesus alone remains our Firm Foundation and our Rock of Ages.
Remain richly blessed..
