I’m not sure how I missed this story all these years, but came across it in a recent class.  Robert McQuilkin and his wife served as missionaries for over a decade. He was then offered the presidency of Columbia Bible College and Seminary, which he accepted. Over the years he began to gain prominence as a gifted leader, speaker and world class NT scholar. As his prominence and influence grew, his wife was diagnosed with Alzheimers. They attempted to find caretakers for her, but she refused their service. With them she was terrified, but when she was with her husband she was at peace. At times she got out of the house and walked barefoot to his college campus calling out for him. It became clear she only wanted to be with him. So, in the height of his career, he resigned. This clip is his resignation address that someone happened to catch an audio recording of. “One’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” - Jesus (Luke 12:15)

Men, this is what it means to love your wife. (Eph 5:22-33)
