Love Cherishes

We are on Day 11 of The Love Dare which means...(drum roll please)...just twenty-nine days until the big day!!

Today's Dare is "Love Cherishes".

Husbands ought also to love their wives as their own bodies.  He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it.  Ephesians 5:28, 29

When we marry, we become one with our spouse.  Pain inflicted on them, is pain inflicted on yourself.  Just as you lovingly nurture and care for your own body, you should nurture and care for your spouse.  Purposely injuring your spouses emotions is the same as self-mutilation.  You are dividing what God has joined together and ultimately fighting against yourself.

Determine to cherish your spouse.  Show them you cherish them with your words and actions.
