Day 8 Love Is Not Jealous

Day 8
Love is not jealous

Love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire. –Song of Solomon 8:6 NIV

Determine to become your spouse’s biggest fan and to reject any thoughts of jealousy. To help you set your heart on your spouse and focus on their achievements, take yesterday’s list of negative attributes and discreetly burn it. Then share with your spouse how glad you are about a success he or she recently enjoyed.

Today’s Questions:
How hard was it to destroy the list? What are some positive experiences that you can celebrate in the life of your mate? How can you encourage them toward future success?

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. (Romans 12:15)

Yesterday’s Dare:
The positive list was most definitely the easiest to make. Tommy doesn’t have a bad bone in his body. Most of his bad attributes aren’t really that bad, they are more annoying than anything. He also has a habit of ‘using the wrong attribute at the wrong time’; which means it’s not really that he is a bad person I just need to learn to be patient and let the little stuff go. Of all the positive things I wrote and could have thanked Tommy for I chose to thank him for being sweet. That he is, all the time. There is not a day goes by that he does not tell me that I’m beautiful and that he loves me. J
