The Love Dare pt 10

Well, we are almost done with our love dare! Only about 2 weeks to go. I hope you have enjoyed doing this with your spouse and that you have grown closer because of it.
Here are our next 3 dares.

Day 30 - Ask the Lord to reveal anything in your own heart that is threatening oneness with your spouse and, if appropriate, discuss it openly and seek God for unity. (John 17:11 - I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name—the name you gave me—so that they may be one as we are one.)

Day 31 - Commit to God and your spouse to make your marriage the top priority over every other human relationship. (Genesis 2:24 - For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.)

Day 32 - If at all possible, try to initiate sex with your spouse today (in a way that honors them). (I Corinthians 7:3 - The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband.)

Since it is a given that day 32 will be the favorite of most if not all of us, there will be no need for me to update ya'll on that:) I did want to give you a definition of the word honor since over time the English language has undergone numerous changes in the meaning of words.

Honor - The word in Hebrew means “heavy.” We do have something similar in English: “gravity.” To honor a person is to consider everything about that person with gravity--with weight--with seriousness. In the English language, the meaning is: Esteem due or paid to worth; high estimation; respect; consideration; reverence; veneration; manifestation of respect or reverence.
