What's the greatest love story you've ever encountered? I recently read a trending article about lady who is a writer of a television show who chose to divorce her husband and pursue a relationship with an actress she works with. It's not a show I know anything about, nor am I familiar with the people involved. But the article that I read begins with this phrase:
"In what is arguably the greatest love story of our time..."
I wonder. On what merits would anyone argue this to be the greatest love story of our time - or any time? I guess someone might make an argument that this lady was courageous enough to disregard "societal norms" that would constrict her to an unhappy (two year) marriage. I suppose the argument might continue that everyone should be happy in their relationship, and this lady was only right to explore this "other side" of herself, especially since it has obviously led to finding a better relationship, a better fit - possibly her "true love."
True Love Story
Scripture teaches a different story of what love looks like. It's the story of Christ and how He loves us, pursues us - gave up everything for us. And for that, we could look to multiple accounts in scripture. I'll point you to what is probably my favorite:
Jesus, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. ~Philippians 2:4-8
Now that is an incredible love - the GREATEST love story. For our time - for all time.
