Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.—Ephesians 5:25-28 (ESV)
I’m reading a couple of books right now, and I wanted to get a little bit of input from everyone to think about as I’m reading and afterwards:
- Chazown by Craig Groeschel—this may sound like hyperbole, but this looks like it could be The Purpose-Driven Life for millennials and the 21st Century. It integrates with free tools on the internet to help you determine what God’s plan is for your life through your past experiences, your present position, and your future hopes.
- Couples Who Pray by SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt—this will be a Valentine’s Day post next month, so I figured I better get started. News flash, guys: Valloween is less than a month away. Start making plans now.
A couple of questions (you may answer none of them, any of them, or all of them):
- Do you feel like you are doing right now what God has put you on earth to do? If not, do you know what God wants you to do and is preparing you for?
- Do you pray with your spouse? How often? What have been the effects?
- What is your best/worst Valentine’s Day story?
I will go first in the comments.
