His Sick Mother-In-Law Was Hunched Over In the Kitchen. Then He Realized Why.

Marriage is the ultimate bond between two people; a promise to love one another, despite flaws and differences. But a side-effect of matrimony is the inescapable link to the “other family.”

A heroic act indeed — something that’ll stay with him until the end of his days. And it came from the person that he was once forced to “grudgingly” accept as family.

There’s a bible verse that comes to mind, and perfectly describes the story. It’s something we should all try to remember in our everyday lives:

“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.” -1 Corinthians 13:4-5

Pass it on.
