Love Dare Day 30

~~DAY 30~Love Brings Unity~~
Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are. —John 17: 11
Unity. Togetherness . Oneness. These are the unshakable hallmarks of our God.
What would happen in your marriage, husband, if you devoted yourself to loving, honoring, and serving your wife in all things?
What would happen, wife, if you made it your mission to do everything possible to promote togetherness of heart with your husband?
What if we took these words of the apostle Paul to heart? “Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our  Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1: 10).
Isolate one area of division in your marriage and pray about it. Ask the Lord to reveal anything in your own heart that is threatening oneness in your marriage. Pray that He would open up the communication lines so that you can find more agreement and stay on the same page. And if appropriate, discuss this matter openly, seeking God for unity.
Did the Lord open your eyes to anything new that might be giving fuel to this point of disagreement?
How do you intend to respond?
What do you hope to see God do in your spouse as well?
