" [LOVE] does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the TRUTH." 1 Corinthians 13:6

Hello friends, todays devotion speaks of the way the world pulls us away from the truth the second we close our Bibles each day and tries to drown us with it's lies. What things pull at us and do we rejoice in them or the things of the Lord??What overjoys us most about our hubands when they get a really good raise at work when they win a golf tournament trophy or when they
gather our families for devotions and bedtime prayers and read the word of God ? we are the most influential people in our spouse's lives have we been using this influence to leadthem to honor God, or to dishonor God?? "LOVE" rejoices most in the things that please God. When our mate's are growing in Christian character , persevering in faith, seeking purity, and embracing roles of giving and service- becoming spiritually responsible in our home the bible says we should be celebrating this. I know these things are important in my own marriage when I see these qualities in Greg I rejoice and fall more in love with him it is wonderful. However I think we need to becareful to encourage these things yet not to condemn in the times they stumble because they will indeed stumble as do we though right. For me the Lord has really convicted me to stop reminding my husband of all the things he hasn't done or has failed in and start Praising him for the things he does do and be thankful not to mention the fact would I like someone ALWAYS pointing out my faults ummmmmmm NO. So let's celebrate the godliness in our husbands and our lives. The LOVE DARE for today askes this:
(Find a specific , recent example when your spouse demonstrated Christian Character in a noticeable way. Verbally commend them for this at some point today.)

Father thank you for yet again another challenge may we all just encourage our mates in their walks with you and may we compliment them when we see them following after you may we all seek to follow whole heartedly after you and you alone and may each of our marriages grow stronger in You with each passing day we love you and thank you in Jesus Name Amen

Until Next Time,
Your humble unworthy servant,
