I have been reading Grace Filled Marriage by Tim Kimmel the past few weeks. He writes about how we must take the grace God has shown us and show it to our husbands in just that same way. Unconditional!
The really has some great nuggets of information that caught my attention! You can read the credit card metaphor (which has nothing to do with credit) I enjoyed here. The most recent section that hit home with me was a section entitled “The Qualities of True Marital Greatness.” So today I am going to share those four qualities that Kimmel writes about!
- A humble heart- Not thinking less of yourself, but thinking or yourself less.
- A grateful heart- Be thankful for the things you have been given. The things God has given you and the things your husband has given you or allowed you to have.
- A generous heart- Give openly to your man. Give your thoughts, time, energy and effort.
- A servant’s heart- Have an attitude of sacrificing. Meet the needs of your hubby even when it is not the best time or the best way that you would like. Remember we have to be servant lover’s as well.
Personally, I think the humble heart is what I need to continue to work on. Granted I don’t do any of them perfect, but the one that could use the most work is a humble heart. As humans we are sometimes selfish. We are willing to be thankful, be generous and serve as long as it is on our own time. That is not particularly humble. It is not about what works best for us, but what our spouse needs from us. I take a step forward this week to be intentional about having a humble heart!
Which Quality do you need to continue to work on?
Until Next Time- Truly Love,
