Love is unconditional
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
Do something out of the ordinary today for your spouse - something that proves (to you and to him) that your love is based on your choice and nothing else. Wash the car, clean the kitchen, buy his favourite dessert, fold the laundry. Demonstrate love to them for the sheer joy of being their partner in marriage.
Love makes good impressions
Greet one another with a kiss of love. 1Peter 5:14
Think of a specific way you'd like to greet your spouse today. Do it with a smile and enthusiasm. Then determine to change your greeting to reflect your love for them.
Love is not jealous
Love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire.
Song of the Solomons 8:6 NIV
Determine to become your spouses biggest fan and to reject any thoughts of jealousy. To help you to set your heart on your spouse and focus on their achievements, take yesterday's list of negative attributes and discreetly burn it. Then share with your spouse how glad you are about a success he or she recently enjoyed.
Love believes the best
(Love) believes all things, hope all things. 1 Corinthians 13:7
For today's dare, get 2 sheets of paper. On the first one, spend a few minutes writing possitive things about your spouse. Then do the same with negative things on the second sheet. Place both sheets on a secret place for another day. There is a different purpose and plan for each. At some point during the remainder of the day, pick a positive attribute from the list and thank your spouse for having this characteristic.
Love is not irritable
He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirrit, than he who captures a city. Proverbs 16:32
Choose today to react to tough circumstances in your marriage in loving ways instead of with irritation. Begin by making a list below of areas where you need to add margin to your schedule. Then list any wrong motivations that you need to release from your life.
