Romancing Your Spouse-Day 30

Topic: Love Keeps No Record of Wrongs

"4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails."
 --1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (from the NIV: New International
Version of the Bible)

Our Focus:
Today we focus on verse 5, where love, "keeps no record of wrongs."

Question for Reflection: Do you keep a mental list of wrongs you believe your spouse has committed?

Whether we admit it, or not, we sometimes maintain "mental lists" of things. For me, before I was married, I kept a mental check list of the type of woman I wanted to marry. 

Perhaps you have a mental list? If it's a list of wrongs, it's time to erase that list. Move forward with truly trusting your spouse, which should allow your mutual love to flow freely without mental road blocks.
