PUT YOUR SPOUSE FIRST

PUT YOUR SPOUSE FIRST

Have you made the decision that, no matter what, your spouse is number one (obviously, after Jesus Christ)?  You married each other for life.  You are not guaranteed how long that life together will be.  Putting your spouse first says, in effect, “I choose to make the most of whatever time we will share on this earth.”

At one level, this means making sure your mutual needs for romance and physical oneness get met.  At another level, it means choosing to give each other the gift of mutually pleasing one another however you can.

Do you have a heart for your spouse and his or her needs?  Do you show appreciation for your mate’s efforts to remain pure in thinking and faithful to you in your marriage?  Do you value how God designed him or her and show it with any kind of admiration and gratitude?

It has been said that less than 20 percent of all married couples have conversations about sex.  Is that true of you?  Do the two of you talk about what you like and don’t like?  Do you know what would please your mate?  You can’t enflame your romance if you don’t know each other’s needs and what would communicate love to your spouse.

NOTE:  This article came from the book Family Life and Marriage Bible by Dennis and Barbara Rainey.

NOTE:  Daily there is a new post to help your marriage be a success.
