At the beginning of the year, we set out to accomplished lots of goals, but as excitement of the “new” is starting to wear out, we are getting burned out during this season of spring cleaning and end-of-school-year events, or you’re just ready for a break, it is hard to be intentional about living out Mark 12:30-31. In these verses, Jesus says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
During our church’s Parents’ Night Out, our children’s director led a devotion (before we left our kiddos for a date night) which included these verses. She shared that we need to love our closest neighbor, which is our spouse! To fully love our spouse, we need to know how they best receive love. At a book study, I got a great reminder of showing love using the five love languages.
What is your love language? How can your husband show you love? What is your husband’s love language? How can you show him love?
