Love Dare~Days 33-35

Day 33~ "Love completes each other"

"If two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?" -Ecclesiastes 4:11

Today's Dare:

Recognize that your spouse is included in your future success. Let them know today that you desire to include them in your upcoming decisions, and that you need their perspective and counsel. If you have ignored their input in the past, admit your oversight and ask them forgive you.

To Journal:

~What are some upcoming decisions you can make together?
~What did you learn today about the role of your mate?
~Were you able to complete today's dare?

Day 34~ "Love celebrates godliness"

"[Love] does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth." -1 Cor. 13:6

Today's Dare:

Find a specific, recent example when your spouse demonstrated Christian character in a noticeable way. Verbally commend them for this at some point today.

To Journal:

~What example did you choose to recognize?
~How many other ways could you celebrate their growth in godliness?
~How could you encourage them to perserve in it?
~Were you able to complete today's dare?

Day 35~ "Love is accountable"

"Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed." -Proverbs 15:22

Today's Dare:

Find a marriage mentor-someone who is a strong Christian and who will be honest and loving with you. If you feel that counseling is needed, then take the first step to set up an appointment. During this process, ask God to direct your decisions and discernment.

To Journal:

~Who did you choose?
~Why did you select this person?
~What do you hope to learn from them?
