Really there is no mystery to love. We just need to be cognizant of what edifies it and then act on building those qualities. Consider your marriage as a friendship rather than a “duty” or “responsibility.” Most of us would do anything for our best friend, but yet, not put any effort into our spouse. Friendships are maintained because:
- Interest is shown
- Sacrifices are made
- Encouragement is given
- Judgements are not made
- Fun is spontaneous
I challenge you to concentrate on just those five points and apply them to your marriage. How can you show your spouse that you are interested in them? What can you sacrifice to put your spouse first? Have you encouraged or edified your spouse recently? Are you constantly judging every decision and action? Do you take time to have fun together?
Don’t take your spouse for granted and understand that the love you have to give is powerful. Enjoy life with your spouse. Provide moments of calm during a time of fear and uncork the so-called mystery of love. We all can acquire it!
