Day 30 - Love Brings Unity
Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are. – John 17:11
|Today's Message: |
This is the whole 'flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone' thing. It's reviewing the Trinity and how it relates to marriage. It's reviewing Christ and the church and how it relates to marriage. All good points. All hard to implement or follow. I think you have to focus on the ones that matter. You won't agree, or support each other on every front.
I understand the concept, and I appreciate what it's saying. It's just hard to do. Especially when there are so many differences between men and women in general. I like football…she likes the Lifetime Channel. I like steak…she prefers shrimp.
That being said…those are just 'things'. They aren't important. The important things concern themselves with what you are as a person. They are about politics and religion. They are about things that matter.
That being said, I think the thing that matters the most to my spouse is my insistence on being self-employed. I need to think about what would make her the happiest as well as make our retirement years better.
I'm looking forward to what this dare can do though!
|Today's Dare: |
Isolate one area of division in your marriage, and look on today as a fresh opportunity to pray about it. Ask the Lord to reveal anything in your own heart that is threatening oneness with your spouse. Pray that He would do the same for them. And if appropriate, discuss this matter openly, seeking God for unity.
|The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! (Deuteronomy 6:4)|
