The love between parent and child or spouse and mate, is often the strongest areas of love we find in our societies. This love goes beyond circumstance or situation, as there are few things a mother would not do for their child, or a husband for his wife. But can the love between family members ever grow to unhealthiness? Albeit hard to imagine, the answer is yes. As seen in Mathew 10:37 our God is a jealous God, and He wants us to love him above all else. But why does it matter that he gets the best of our love? Well, true and pure love can only come from Godly relationships, so skipping this reality, opens the door to sin in pursuit of false love. And false love or sin, places the love giver and the love receiver, at risk. So if you have a family member and you truly want to love them with all your heart, make sure to first love God. This is healthy, family love.
