Wisdom from the World
Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they’re trying to find someone who is going to make them feel good. In reality the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place you go to take.
– Anthony Robbins
Wisdom from The Word
“Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious, but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us, but to give everything of Himself to us. Love like that.”
– Ephesians 5:2 (The Message)
Keep Me Real Lord!
“In my marriage at those times that I am willfully self-centered, when I am upset that I’m not getting what I think I deserve, and when I am not interested in reaching out to my LifeMate, Lord, jolt me back to reality. Help me to initiate a loving action. In those moments help me to refocus. Help me to carefully consider what I can give rather than staying in the entitled mindset that is only concerned about what I can get. Help me to learn to love extravagantly.
