True love means being flexible.
Not always getting my way. And not pushing for it.
Romans 12:10 says it best:
When I remember to honor my hubby above myself, Robert feels loved. When I treat him with the same kindness and consideration that I give my girlfriends, he feels loved. It’s not a complex idea that can only be understood by the deep thinkers among us. It’s really pretty simple to grasp, but hard to put into practice consistently when confronted with the business of real life.
Fortunately, after all these years, I’m so much better at this! Unfortunately, when I miss it, it seems so much worse because it doesn’t happen nearly as often as it used to.
My prayer today is that we would all grow in this area!
