Love Dare Day 33

~Day 33~ Love completes each other~
If two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? —Ecclesiastes 4: 11
God created each of us to compliment each other in marriage! 
In the finale of God’s creation, He made the first marriage by taking one man, removing part of him, and fashioning a woman. In this mystery of matrimony, two could then come together and become one. Adam, though complete with God alone, found his God-given needs met even more fully with Eve, his complement in life. This is true in your marriage also.
Marriage is one of God’s unique ways of showing both men and women that we’re not all-sufficient in ourselves, that the effectiveness of our marriage is dependent upon both of us working together.
 Joined together, you are greater than your independent parts. You need each other. You complete each other.
Recognize that your spouse is integral to your future success. Let them know today that you desire to include them in your upcoming decisions, and that you need their perspective and counsel. If you have ignored their input in the past, admit your oversight and ask them to forgive you.
How did your spouse respond?
What are some upcoming decisions you can make together?
What did you learn today about the role of your mate?
