Day 18 - Love Seeks to Understand

Today's Verse:

How blessed is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding. – Proverbs 3:13
Today's Message:

It's the question everybody asks everyday they are on earth. If you're breathing, and if you care about others… especially your spouse… you want to know 'What does "fill in the blank' really want.

According to the message today, the way to get that answered may be easier than you think. Just ask them. But ask them in an environment of trust and relaxation. If you scream at the top of your lungs "What do you want from me?", you'll get a different reaction that you will if you ask them during some personal down time.
Today's Questions:

  • Do you know his or her greatest hopes and dreams?
  • Do you fully understand how they prefer to give and receive love?
  • Do you know what your spouse's greatest fears are and why they struggle with them?
Today's Dare:

Prepare a special dinner at home, just for the two of you. The dinner can be as nice as you prefer. Focus this time on getting to know your spouse better, perhaps in areas you've rarely talked about. Determine to make it an enjoyable evening for you and your mate.

  • What did you learn about your spouse today that you didn't know before?
    • This was simply not possible to do today. There were other plans, work schedules, and organizational things that couldn't be moved. I did stop by and get her some more of those chocolate cashews I've mentioned in another post. That went well.
  • How could you continue this process of discovery in other ways, at other times?
    • I'm going to have that dinner at another date, to be determined during my daily planning session.
  • What were some of the moments that made this evening memorable?
Acquire wisdom; and with all your acquiring, get understanding. (Proverbs 4:7) - -
