Welcome to Day 1 of The Love Dare!
Love is patient.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient,
bearing with one another in love.
-Ephesians 4:2 NIV.
The first part of this dare is fairly simple. Although love is communicated in a number of ways, our words often reflect the condition of our heart. For the next day, resolve to demonstrate patience and to say nothing negative to your spouse at all. If the temptation arises, choose not to say anything. It’s better to hold your tongue than to say something you’ll regret.
KLove Radio Station did The Love Dare and has a daily post (with copyright approval from the publisher). You can find it here (especially if your book has not arrived yet!)
Please share your thoughts, challenges, successes and encouragement for everyone participating in The Love Dare in any of our available communities: The FirefighterWife and our 24-7 Commitment Fire Family Life Pages on Facebook, or in our Private Online Communities, The Fire Wife Sisterhood for women and the 24-7 Commitment Honor Guard for men. If you watched the movie, you can see that this can be really difficult and requires great community support.
