“Love does not seek it’s own” 1 Corinthians 13:5
We are all selfish – some more than others but we are all guilty of this. We need to stop comparing our ‘works’ against someone else’s. It’s ok if I am doing more now because there will be a time when the roles switch around and he does more. We need to start looking for ways to say “YES” to our spouse rather than ways to say “no”. “He didn’t do that for me the last time I was sick so why should I do that for him?”
I like this line from the book, “The bottom line is that you either make decisions out of love for others or love for yourself.” Wow, that’s a guideline we can go by. There is no in between with that statement. It sure makes it easier to figure out what our true intentions are.
I am working on patience and kindness and now I will add being unselfish to the mix. I will say YES more times than I say no.
