The Basic Gift

“True husbandly love is rendered when a man gives himself to the uttermost, and then as a result of that self-gift, he naturally gives other things (material provision) as well. A man cannot bestow himself and then not bestow provision, protection, and so on, but a man can bestow provision and not bestow himself” (For a Glory and a Covering, p. 114).

  1. “Uttermost” is only found in the perfection of Christ. Because we all fail at the “uttermost.”
