Romancing Your Spouse-Day 33: Truth

"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 conclude our discussion of verse 6, "Love ...rejoices with the truth."

Question for Reflection:
Are you completely truthful with your spouse?

Discussion:In the Book of John, 8:31-32, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

The truth will indeed set you free.

If you are not being truthful with your spouse, this will become a roadblock with regard to romance.

Pray for guidance, then proceed with a plan to be truthful with your spouse. Sometimes the truth can hurt others, which is why prayer is so important. We need God's wisdom and guidance. Prayer is our prime opportunity to communicate with the Father and ask for His help.
