Romans 5:8 But God proves his love for us in that whilewe still were sinners Christ died for us.

There it sat holding one square on the brown tube. What was I to do? My teeth clenched as I pursed my lips together and shook my head. “I’m always putting a new role on! Why can’t he ever do this? It only takes a couple of moments! Now I’m stuck!” 
This is just one of my pet peeves my husband may or may not know about. There is an unwritten list I keep, sometimes I tally the offenses up. But why? What good will it do for me to keep score? I know he loves me more than life; he supports my hobbies, my healthy journey, and he will get up out of bed in the middle of the night to get me a drink or to check a noise that I heard. He knows my faults, yet loves me all the more! He is human, but I believe he’s a fine example of Jesus to me. Moment by moment he lays down his life for other people so that they may have hope, peace, joy.
Right now he’s in Minneapolis taking a weeklong class so that he can better himself. He does this because he knows this is what God is called him to do. He studies to show himself approved.
2 Timothy 2:15 

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
I’ve been studying the Bible,taking classes, but what for? So I can be like the Israelites and use it against the one God gave me, so I can believe I’m the “better one?” 
God went to the Gentiles, because the Israelites rejected Him. I know I give my husband countless reasons to have a pet peeve list with me, yet He doesn’t remind me of it. My husband has laid down his life for me, because he loves me with an unconditional love. Maybe I too should follow Christ’s example, stop acting like a Pharisee and throw my list away.
