From Fiddler on the Roof

One of my favorite movies/musicals is Fiddler on the Roof – and one of the best song in that musical takes place when Tevye turns to his wife, Golda (a woman he married through an arrangement of his parents) and he sings her a song:

“Golda, do you love me?”

“Do I what?” Golda sings back. “For twenty-five years I’ve washed your clothes, cooked your meals, shared your bed, raised your children, and now you ask, ‘Do I love you?’ ”

“I know, Golda,” says Tevye, “and I’m grateful, but do you love me?”

Here’s the video:

Fiddler on the roof – Do you love me ? (with subtitles)
Do you love me ?

It becomes obvious, doesn’t it, that  Tevye and Golda are truly in love.

It’s not a whim, or a work, —- its a relationship.

That’s how it is with God, too.  It’s a LOVE relationship.
