Weekend Love Dare

Day 11 - Love Cherishes
Husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. —Ephesians 5:28

Cherish is to make and make known how special they are. May we cherish in our hearts our mates and show with our actions how much we cherish them:
Love Dare:
What need does your spouse have that you could meet today? Can you run an errand? Give a back rub or foot massage? Is there housework you could help with? Choose a gesture that says, “I cherish you” and do it.

Day 12 - Love Lets the Other Win
Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. —Philippians 2:4

Wow!  What can we add to that?  A huge step of maturity in marriage is the realization that we are not always right and don't have to win.

Love Dare:
Demonstrate love by willingly choosing to give in to an area of disagreement between you and your spouse. Tell them you are putting their preference first.

  1. Compromise is a seasoning that keeps a marriage cooking!!

    Thanks for this good word - being right usually isn't the best end result. Being kind and gentle and humble works much better in matters of love!
