Love is not rude
He who blesses his friend with a loud voice early in the morning, it will be reckoned a curse to him. Proverbs 27:14
Ask your spouse to tell you 3 things that cause him or her to be uncomfortable or irritated with you. You must do so without attacking them or justifying your behavior. This is from their perspective only.
Love is thoughtful
How precious also are your thoughts to me . . . How fast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. Psalm 139:17-18
Contact your spouse during the business of the day. Have no agenda other than asking how he or she is doing and if there is anything you could do for them.
Love is not selfish
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love: give preference to one another in honor. Romans 12:10
Whatever you put your time, energy, and money into will become more important to you. It's hard to care for something you are not investing in. Along with restraining from negative comments, buy your spouse something that says, "I was thinking of you today."
Love is Kind
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ has forgiven you. - Ephesians 4;32
In addition to saying nothing negative to your spouse again today, do at least one unexpected gesture as an act of kindness.
Hope all of you are well, I have been thinking of taking you all on the 40 day Love journey.
I don't know who of you have been watching the movie "fireproof", it's a brilliant movie!
So I have been thinking of using this fireproof movie's 40 days love journey, this is not only for couples who are struggling at the moment, but can really improve even the strongest relationship. And why don't we just use it to improve our daily life and relationships with all the people around us?
I truly believe if we are living according to this, we will be much happier!
