(You can read more details explaining how we are doing the dare here: The Love Dare with FirefighterWife)
Husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies.
Excerpt from The Love Dare Book:
“Don’t let the culture around you determine the worth of your marriage. To compare it with something that can be discarded or replaced is to dishonor God’s purpose for it. That would be like amputating a limb. Instead, it should be a picture of love between two imperfect people who choose to love each other regardless.
Whenever a husband looks into the eyes of his wife, he should remember that “he who loves his wife loves himself.” And a wife should remember that when she loves him, she is also giving love and honor to herself.
When you look at your mate, you’re looking at a part of you. So treat her well. Speak highly of him. Nourish and cherish the love of your life.”
“ Answering him, Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” (Mark 10:51)”
What need does your spouse have that you could meet today? Can you run an errand? Give a back rub or foot massage? Is there housework you could help with? Choose a gesture that says, “I cherish you” and do it with a smile.
Big question for the fire wives…..We just passed the quarter-way point. And it’s not easy to remember to do this every day, is it? Are you ready to push on through to halfway??
