Scripture for the day is Proverbs 5:18-20

May your fountain be blessed,
    and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
19 A loving doe, a graceful deer—
    may her breasts satisfy you always,
    may you ever be intoxicated with her love.
20 Why, my son, be intoxicated with another man’s wife?
    Why embrace the bosom of a wayward woman?

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I see that true intimacy between human beings depends not on fleeting “chemistry,” but on long-term commitment and faithfulness to helping the other person be all they should be before you. Let all my relationship – and not just marriage – reflect this insight from you. Amen.
