Romancing Your Spouse-Day 31: Record of What's Right

Topic:  Record of What's Right

"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 continue our focus on verse 5, where love, "keeps no record of wrongs," but this time, we'll concentrate on what's right in your romantic relationship with your spouse.

Question for Reflection: As we begin Day 31 of this devotional, think back over the past month and compose a list of things that have worked well in terms of romance.

Now that we're approaching the end of our devotional, I want to make sure that upon completion, we each have proven romantic gestures that we can both repeat and build upon.

Begin to think creatively about a "culminating activity" for this devotional. What I mean by this is that I want you to plan a date by the end of this 40 day devotional which reflects everything you've learned about your spouse in terms of their romantic needs.

Again, it need not be expensive, but you should put prayer, creative thought and energy into planning something special. 
Thanks for reading this devotional.

Please feel free to share and pass along to others.

Have a blessed day!
