Love is kind , patient and not self seeking. We check some of the best Love stories in the Bible that showed how love can change lives.
6 Abraham and Sarah (Genesis 1718)
Ah, Abraham and Sarah – the couple that traveled together, caused trouble together and dreamed big
together! Imagine when Abraham first told Sarah they were going to move far away from their families
(besides bringing Lot along) – this may have seemed welcomed at first, but moving away back then
meant you were leaving for good. Abraham also let his insecurities and lack of faith get the best of him
as he told Sarah to lie about who she was. Sarah became impatient waiting around for God and took
building a family into her own hands. As a highly regarded Biblical couple, their story shows that no one
is perfect. How many marriages today are broken up because of family stress or even infidelity? See
Abraham and Sarah as an example of how God can bless your marriage if you stick together and learn
to fully trust Him sooner.
5 Jacob and Rachel (Genesis 29)
I think every woman today should desire their future spouse to be a Jacob. He adored Rachel and
loved her dearly that he became her father’s servant and sacrificed years of his life to appease Laban.
Rachel was not always happy in her marriage, especially since she had to share her husband with her
sister Leah (yeah, this seems foreign to me and I can’t imagine this!). God didn’t forget Rachel, but
blessed her with kids when she cried out to Him. Jacob strongly favored his sons from Rachel and this
created divisions between the kids, but Jacob and Rachel showed how marriage can still work when
the situation is not the most ideal or fair.
4 Ruth and Boaz (Ruth 4)
Ruth and Boaz’ story is sweet and charming. After experiencing the death of her first husband, Ruth
stayed close to her motherinlaw, whom she loved dearly. Boaz was attracted to Ruth’s loyalty and
began leaving tokens of extra food for her. What man doesn’t try to make life easier for the woman he
is trying to impress? Their relationship is one of servant hood as their love grew while serving one
3 Mary and Joseph (Matthew 1)
You would think that being the parents of Jesus would have helped them create a strong bond from the
very beginning of their marriage, but that’s just not how their story began. They were getting ready to
become united in marriage when Mary became pregnant and Joseph knew this was impossible. God
intervened and although they were afraid – especially of what their family and community would say –
they knew that Jesus was going to be special. After surviving the first few years of Jesus’ life while
moving to a foreign land for refuge, Mary and Joseph had a larger family and realized that Jesus was
very special at a young age, maybe what many would call a gifted child by today’s terminology.
2 Adam and Eve (Genesis 23)
The original couple in the Bible, Adam and Eve had many blessings to share in the Garden of Eden,
but ended up choosing a life of toil and struggle (sounds familiar, right?). What I admire about them is
that they had to learn as they went and, yes, they had guidance and council from God, but they were
setting the original standards. They had to learn their occupations from scratch – talk about inventing
the wheel! One of their sons murdered his brother. Life was certainly not easy, but they remained
committed and I believe they were immensely blessed because of it.
As you can see, all five of these love stories are so different, just as your marriage journey is unlike
anyone else’s. There are many lessons to learn in each of these stories, but the biggest is that love is
an action, not just a feeling. Sure, the rush of feelings that come with new love can be intoxicating, but
being a servant for your spouse is what mends your relationship and brings you closer to one another
1. Jesus Christ And GOD
This will always stand out as the greatest love story of all time. GOD sending his son to the world to save man from Sin.
