Broken Love System – The Intro

BLS-iWaited

A couple nights back, I went to dinner with a few friends and naturally the conversation went to relationships. As we were talking I began to see a pattern of how our relationships and interactions as men and women have become so dysfunctional. The more I thought about it, I thought “We have a Broken Love System”. Somewhere along the lines we lost the definition of love and mutual respect and we’ve created this monster where no one gets what they need in relationships and everyone’s pointing the finger.

I define love as: Two whole, mature, fulfilled, and emotionally healthy people coming together to live life on purpose.

Now what does this mean?

You all know I love definitions, right? Let’s look at some.

Wholea thing that is complete in itself.

**In this case, you are complete in Christ. 

Mature: fully developed physically; full-grown.

Fulfilledsatisfied or happy because of fully developing one’s abilities or character. 
 
Emotional health: the psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment.
What all of this is saying is that once you’ve done the internal work to understand who you are and who you are not, once you put away childish things, once you understand that another human being is an added bonus to your life and not what makes you complete…THEN and only then can you enter a productive and fulfilling relationship/marriage.
Over the next weeks I’d like to explore the ways that our Love System is broken and offer some ways we can fix it.
Join me next week for a new entry. See ya! Have a blessed week!
