Completes Each Other
“Recognize that your spouse is integral to your
future success. Let them know today that you desire to include them in
your upcoming decisions, and that you need their perspective and counsel.
If you have ignored their input in the past, admit your oversight and ask
them to forgive you.”
This is a
dare I already completed during the “Love is Responsible” dare. I admitted I had faulted big time in this area. I am a
stubborn person and when I want something I would do what I could to get it
whether he was in agreement or not.
What stuck out to me - “Don’t try doing all the analysis
yourself. Don’t disqualify his or her right to voice an opinion on matters that
affect both of you. Love realizes that God has put you together on purpose. And
through you may wind up disagreeing with your spouse’s perspectives, you should
still give their views respect and strong consideration. This honor’s God
design for your relationship and guards the oneness He intends.”
I look forward to sharing this with my husband in the future
should our marriage reconcile. It is one of many areas I have been awoken to.
together, you are greater than your independent parts. You need each other. You
complete each other.
It is the only way oneness can be achieved.
