Love Dare Day 29 – Love’s Motivation

I don’t know about you, but I don’t always feel like loving my husband. Thankfully marital love isn’t based on feelings alone. When we spoke our vows, we included God in this union.  And by doing so, we have taken the responsibility of loving as He has instructed us to. Colossians 3:18 “Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.”  Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”

Remember, we are required to love our spouse totally independent on whether they are deserving or not. Our main purpose in loving our spouse is to honor the Lord.

CHALLENGE:  Tell your spouse that you love them. Express this love in a tangible way. Then be sure to pray for your spouse, thanking God for them.
