Mr. and Mrs. Beaver:
"Love is willing self-sacrifice for the good of another that does not require reciprocation or that the person being loved is deserving." Paul David Tripp, What Did You Expect??, pg. 189
We'll finish our series of favorite marriage quotes with what we now consider our family's love "definition," obviously gathered by the author from much scripture.
When a marriage or family life is lived as Paul Tripp wisely instructs in this definition, the possibility of God-given, God-enhanced beauty is endless.
