To strengthen your marriage through quality time.

As you cool down, it’s time to reflect.

Read 1 Peter 3:8-9: “Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.”

Pray together, remember to stretch yourself this week for the sake of your spouse, and stay flexible with your growth:

Lord, open our eyes to see the goodness you’ve created in each of us–and in us together. Grow our affection and our unity from mind and heart outward. Help us respond to each other with tenderness even when we’re hurt.
