One of the most vital components of marriage is to love with a mindset of SACRIFICE. We have to understand that marriage is a covenant (a promise/partnership) in which each person must lay down his/her life (in sacrifice) for the other. Let’s be real… this is a lot easier said than done at times! However, the effects are truly powerful.
Here are two simple ways in which we can hold ourselves accountable to loving in this way.
1. Ask YOURSELF, “What can I give up today?”… what can you lay down (sacrifice) in order to show love/support to your spouse/significant other
2. Ask YOUR SPOUSE, “How can I help?” or “What can I help with?”… A simple show of care can go a long way.
