Ironside Counsels a Man Who Says he Loves His Wife Too Much
A young man once went to see Dr. Harry Ironside to confess a fault. “I’m loving my wife too much!” he told the well-known Bible teacher. “In fact, I’ve put her on such a high plane, I fear it’s sinful.” “Do you think you love your wife more than Christ loved the Church?” inquired Ironside. The husband didn’t dare say he did. Dr. Ironside advised: “When you are able to love your wife more than Christ loves the church, then come see me.” (Source Unknown).
