Love is Not Self-Seeking with Lindsey Maestas
Today’s episode is so special - Lindsey Maestas from Sparrows and Lily is on today and we are jamming on marriage + what it means to die to yourself. In addition, we jam on materialism, keeping up with the Jones’, and how to navigate all of that through the lens of our faith.
Lindsey and I open up about how the expectations we have of our husbands is always for selfish gain….it’s always about US. I love this discussion because it’s so counter cultural. Honestly, even in the Christian world, it can be really easy to receive advice that is totally based on self. In Christ, love isn’t self-seeking - it’s completely other focused. I love that Lindsey “gets” this. It’s so easy to give ourselves grace - so we need to give that same grace to our husbands :) This is such a beautiful conversation. I can’t wait for you to dive in!!
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
