Day 28 - Love Makes Sacrifices
He laid down His life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers. – 1 John 3:16 HCSB
|Today's Message: We spend a lot of time together. But we also spend a lot of time apart. Sometimes the time apart is spent in doing things that are valuable to the relationship. Sometimes it has no value on the relationship. Those are the times that are what some people refer to as 'me' time. |
This lesson isn't saying that you should give up 'me' time… but perhaps you should take a look at what that 'me' time is really costing in terms of your relationship.
If it's something that is taking you further away from where you WANT your marriage to be…then give it up. (This is true for ANY relationship).
Spend time doing things that will strengthen the relationship rather than things that will take away from the relationship. Find out what your spouse needs…and do everything you can to fill that need. That… is true in everything.
Find a need - fill it.
My wife needs to know right now that our business will support us. If it won't…then I need to drop it. I've been self employed for almost 25 years, and have continued to make the same mistake. I've allowed OTHER people's needs to get in the way of my relationship with her, my family, and my friends. It has to stop.
|Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)|
