Song of Solomon 8:7 (NLT)
7 Many waters cannot quench love, nor can rivers drown it. If a man tried to buy love with all his wealth, his offer would be utterly scorned.

The reigning love of God in the heart is constant and firm. There are no waters that can put out its fire. God�s love will let a person rejoice even in the face of tribulation. Christ died because of God�s love for us. There is no money, no wealth, and no treasure greater than what God did for us through Christ. It is with this love that we are to love others.

What happens in a marriage when one person places a greater importance upon themselves instead of their spouse? The love they intended to show the spouse is suddenly misplaced, misdirected and misused for their own need. If the person does not correct their actions the one they are married to can quickly become fed up. They begin to lose the love and respect they have for the one they loved. The spouse that placed the greater importance upon themself may face the fact their spouse has given up on them and is ready for divorce. It is usually at this moment that the offender wants to change, willing to give up everything in order to maintain the love they once knew. But man finds he cannot buy love with anything he owns for love comes from the heart and gives as Christ gave to us.
