He laid down His life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers.- 1 John 3:16
Love makes sacrifices
I just want to point out something a little funny to me...in the book it asks...Is he hungry? (sexually) Is she thirsty? (needing time and attention) Do people die from thirst or hunger first? just wondering..hehee.. Sorry... does he feel like a stranger? (insecure in his work needing home to be a refuge?) Is she naked? (frightened or ashamed needing covering of your loving affirmation?) is he sick? (physically tired?) does she feel in prison?(needing safety and intervention?)
What is one of the greatest needs in your spouse's life right now? Is there a need you could lift from their shoulders today by a daring act of sacrifice on your part? Whether the need is big or small, purpose to do what you can to meet the need.
Questions for you:
- How much of your mates stress is caused by your lack of concern or initiative?
- When you express a desire to help, how did they receive it?
- Are there other needs you could meet?
Congratulations on your efforts this far! Keep your chin up! Thanks for stopping by! love ya mean it! Stephanie
