“The Price of Love”

Ruth 4:1-12

“Deep in his heart, every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue.”
John Eldredge, Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man’s Soul

  1. A man determined to love 4:1-2
  2. A man determined to count the of love. 4:3-8

“That is what went wrong in the Eden, the garden of God: those who were made to enjoy the beauty of the Lord turned away to enjoy their own. Love’s longings and the desires of their hearts shifted from the Lord to themselves.” Michael Reeves, Delighting in the Trinity.

  1. A man determined to to his love. 4:9-10

“In any relationship, there will be frightening spells in which your feelings of love dry up. And when that happens you must remember that the essence of marriage is that it is a covenant, a commitment, a promise of future love. So what do you do? You do the acts of love, despite your lack of feeling. You may not feel tender, sympathetic, and eager to please, but in your actions you must BE tender, understanding, forgiving and helpful. And, if you do that, as time goes on you will not only get through the dry spells, but they will become less frequent and deep, and you will become more constant in your feelings. This is what can happen if you decide to love.”
 Timothy Keller, The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

  1. A man who is for this love he has for his wife. 4:11-12

“Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.” Psalm 127:1
