I've been thinking about the subject of this post all week and planned to share it with you today. It could best be described as a challenge.This is a challenge that may sound easy, but will take more effort than you might realize! I think, however, that the more you apply this challenge to your life, the more it will become a part of who you are.
The Challenge is this:
To "out-serve" your spouse.
We were challenged with this idea at church on Sunday. Imagine what it would be like if your goal is to serve your husband (or husbands to serve your wife) more than they serve you, and you are both taking the challenge!
Nothing makes me feel more loved than when Wade serves me in some way, especially if I don' t ask for it! The fact that he is looking for ways to serve me shows me his love in a way that so closely represents Christ's love for us -- and isn't that what our love should represent?
"Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God." -- Ephesians 5:1-2
