Keeping the Love Tank Full

Child psychologists affirm that every child has certain basic emotional needs that must be met if he/she is to be emotional stable. Among those emotional needs, none is more basic than the need for love and affection, the need to sense that he or she belongs and is wanted. With an adequate supply of affection, the child will likely develop into a responsible adult. Without that love, he or she will be emotionally and socially challenged. “Inside every child is an ‘emotional tank’ waiting to be filled with love. So why do we think that tank disappears when we grow up? We needed love before we “fell in love,” and we will need it as long as we live. The need to feel loved by on’s spouse is at the heart of marital desires.

Our cry for love: Marriage is designed to meet that need for intimacy and love. That is why the ancient biblical writings spoke of the husband and the wife becoming “one flesh.” That did not mean that individuals would loves their identity; it meant that they would enter into each other’s lives in a deep and intimate way. Keeping the emotional love tank full is as important to a marriage as maintaining the proper oil level is to an automobile. Running your marriage on an empty “love tank” may cost you even more than trying to drive your car without oil.

WARNING: Understanding the five love languages and learning to speak the primary love language of your spouse may radically affect his or her behavior. People have differently when their emotional love tanks are full.

YOUR TURN: Has there ever been a time when you did something because you “meant well”-that is, out of loving motives? How did it turn out?

Have a blessed day!
Serving God with Joy,
