Romancing Your Spouse-Day 9: Servanthood

Topic for Day 9: Servanthood

"Love is patient..."
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (New International Version)

A Week of Patience:
We continue our week of patience with a focus on the first 
three words of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8,  
"Love is patient..." (New International Version)

This is the week we focus on being patient with our spouse. 

Question for Reflection:
How can I be of service to my spouse everyday--
especially with tasks I don't wanna do? 

The Patience to Serve:
Patience can often involve doing something we know
we CAN do, but DON'T feel like doing.

This may be the case with your spouse. 

Find something you can do for your spouse to 
lighten their load today. 
I like to do things for my wife without her 
noticing so that I don't have to take credit
for it. 

Word of advice from someone who learned an
expensive lesson once--pick something that you
can't mess up.

As for my lesson in servanthood gone wrong, let's
just say that the movie version would have been
called, "Honey, I Shrank A Buncha Your Delicate
Clothes."  : )

Have a blessed, service filled day, everybody! : )
