Marriage Week Challenge: Day 3 (2/9/2014)

“There are no traffic jams along the second mile” — Roger Staubach.

That’s true, so while you are pursuing the Day 3 Challenge you probably won’t be bumping into anybody except maybe your spouse – IF both of you are doing the dare!

Jesus said, “If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles” (Matthew 5:41).  That’s a great attitude to have even when no one is forcing mile number one! It’s an especially great attitude to have in your marriage.  That’s why Matthew 5:41 is you M&M verse for today.  Meditate on how you can live it out and memorize it so that God can plant the “DO MORE” attitude deep in your heart.

So, how can you go the extra mile for your spouse today?  If he asks for a shoulder rub, could you give him a body massage?  If she asks for a foot rub, could you start it at her head?  If she asks you to put your dishes in the dishwasher, how about just cleaning the kitchen totally? You get the idea.  Do more. Go the extra mile in your marriage today!
