“One thing that helps is to always put your spouse before yourself.”
~ Gertrude, married 50 years
Who comes first in your marriage?
Is it you – or your spouse?
I think my natural inclination is to think that I put my husband first. But think about it this way…
what have you done today to demonstrate that you put your spouse’s needs and desires before your own?
You could say it like this:
“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit,
but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests,
but also to the interests of others. ”
To be fair, this verse does not apply exclusively to the marriage relationship. It applies to every relationship you have! But apply it to your relationship with your spouse:
Do you count your husband to be more significant than yourself?
I hereby issue a challenge for myself (but you can join along if you want):
Today, I will look for 1 specific thing I can do for my husband that puts him before me. And…biggest deal…I won’t explain why I’m doing it. 🙂
I don’t know what I will do…maybe it will be giving him the lesser burnt piece of pie. 😉 If you decide to join in the challenge, let me know what you get to do for your spouse!!
