Day 29 - Love’s Motivation

Today's Verse:

Render service with a good attitude, as to the Lord and not to men. – Ephesians 6:7 HCSB
Today's Message: Honestly, I'm not exactly sure what the purpose of today's dare was. Maybe it will be revealed to me in the future, but for today it didn't make much sense at all. Maybe it's because I do most of this stuff anyway. Maybe it's because I am thankful everyday for my spouse. I'm not sure.

I'm going to do the dare…I'm going to keep following the daily readings… I'm going to do this out of obedience…

I trust I'll find out why at another date.
Today's Questions:

  • What is the source of your love for your spouse? Is it based on godly principles?
Today's Dare:

Before you see your spouse again today, pray for them by name and for their needs. Whether it comes easy for you or not, say "I love you," then express love to them in some tangible way. Go to God in prayers again, thanking Him for giving you the privilege of loving this one special person – unconditionally, the way He loves both of you.


  • How will this change of motivation affect your relationship and reactions?
    • Not at all. As I said I've been doing this all along anyway for many years.
  • What does this inspire you to do?
    • Rather than waiting for her to get home from work, and then her fix her dinner; I sat out a plate and had her dinner all ready and warm for her when she got home. (this included having the coffee ready). Since this is not the first time I've done this, it was not ground breaking territory, but it did make me realize that she never stops thanking me for the things that I do for her. Even if it's the same old stuff over and over again.
  • What does it inspire you to stop doing?
    • Nothing really. Maybe procrastination, but that's about it.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:15 - -
