Day 12 - Love Lets the Other Win
|Today's Verse: Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests others. – Philippians 2:4|
|Today's Message: |
Is about allowing yourself to 'lose' so that you can 'win'. It may not seem to make sense at first, but if you think about it… it's genius.
I don't know how many times we've had disagreements. Obviously, none of them were so important that it caused an unmendable tear in our relationship though. So, what that means is.. .even though I lost some discussions, and she lost some discussions… we're still here. At this point, I can't really tell you what any of those disagreements were about. That's how trivial they really were in the long run.
So, I need to pick something out (I'm going to read this journal to find it) and then.. Just let her win. Doesn't matter what it is… it doesn't really matter anyway. What matters is that I'm willing to bend.
|Today's 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.
|If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. (Romans 12:18)|
