TODAY’S RESPECT DARE: Hebrews 12:14 says “Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.”  Sometimes when God is trying to teach our spouse something, we feel the need to help Him along.  So today’s Respect Dare is to stay out of God’s way, and instead pray.  Choose to either write down what you sense God is teaching your husband that you might prevent him from learning by interrupting – or – Write down what you sense God is trying to teach you.

TODAY’S LOVE DARE:  Ecclesiasteds 4:11 tells us “If two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?”  Have you ever noticed how you are strong in areas where your wife is weak, and vice versa?  When we are together, we multiply each others joys and divide the sorrows.  So today’s Love Dare is to recognize your spouse is integral to your future success.  Let them know you desire to include them in decisions, and that you need their perspective and counsel.  If you’ve ignored them in the past – confess it and ask for forgiveness.
