Day 135: Love is honorable

 

Live with your wives in an understanding way . . . and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life.—1 Peter 3:7

 

TODAY’S DARE

Choose a way to show honor and respect to your spouse that is above your normal routine. It may be holding the door for her. It might be putting his clothes away for him. It may be the way you listen and speak in your communication. Show your mate that he or she is highly esteemed in your eyes.

 

--I was planning to have the opportunity to see and talk with MB today at the horse farm. But she texted me early to tell me she was not going to be at horse-back riding today.  So, I had to be still again today.  Hopefully, she sees the honor and respect that I show her, especially in the times when she knows the world would say not to be honorable/respectful, but I still choose to.

Because we live in a fallen world, sin exists and we are not married to perfect people. We choose to honor our spouse even when we feel rejected, unloved, or unappreciated. Romans 12:10 tells us to be “devoted to one another in love” and to” honor one another above yourselves”.  If our attempts at honor go unreciprocated, we are to give honor just the same.  That, I will continue...

  • Not saying you are doing this at all.  But it is easy to fall into the trap of taking the dares less seriously and not praying about each days dare when there is limited contact to do the dares.  

  • Good point Tim. it took me a long time to figure that out. Ask him, be still, listen, and act when he leads. Sometimes it may be in or on someone behalf that you would never think about. be prepared not to do it on your wife.

    the other day I turned my car around and went back to a pawn shop only to find that the store owner is a believer and asked for prayer for her backslidden son. You never know what will happen.
