Love is an action word. You can't truly love in words or with kisses and hugs only. Love makes you care for the well-being of the other person. You want to see him/her succeed in health, spirituality and career goals. Not only do you want to see them succeed but you physically aspire to make it happen. Unfortunately, sometimes we love in a counter-productive way by aiding and abetting harmful acts. However, passion is often mistaken for love. The love of passion with a certain individual is not necessarily love for that certain individual. For instance, I love fish and prefer it to many other meat, but I wouldn't nurse a wounded fish back to health. Some couples love each other the way I love fish. However, on the other hand, men and women are saved each day by being fortunate enough to have a caring spouse who encourage them to have regular health check-ups, eat right, get proper sleep, regular exercise and maintain a healthy weight.
One of the major health concerns for men over 40 is prostate cancer. Many wives and women are active in supporting the crusade against prostate cancer. They attend prostate cancer seminars, lectures and health fairs in larger numbers than men. It would be an improvement when more men would rise to the occasion and support female health awareness crusades, at the very least, it should be done on a personal husband and wife basis. The cook of the home must begin to select a healthier diet, which might include less salt, fat, sweets, and greasy foods. Worshipping and praying together is also a positive act of love and caring.
