What the bible has to say about romantic love and marriage is timeless, which is why there are so many beautiful options for those looking for pastor and wife anniversary bible sayings. Patheos’ blog has a good list and some insightful analysis about what each verse means. Here’s a sampling.
1 John 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. (NIV)
The more we learn about God, the more we are able to extend the love He shows us to one another. If we are not growing in our relationship with Him, our personal relationships can quickly fall victim to our own selfish whims and desires.
Colossians 3:14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. (NIV)
God’s love is sacrificial. In marriage, choosing to selflessly love your spouse, and serve their needs above your own, is most representative of that love. Feeling loved and honored by your partner leads to greater trust and a stronger, more unified bond.
Ruth 1:16-17 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.”
Ruth’s display of loyalty gives a beautiful example of the importance of solidarity in marriage. When couples choose to commit to living the same way-for God, and for one another-all relationship decisions can be held to those standards for living.
These are some great choices, but the sky really is the limit when choosing pastor and wife anniversary bible sayings.
