Devotions for a Sacred Marriage 2012

The Hear To

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.
Proverbs 4:23

While how-to marriage books and seminars certainly have their value and place, on their own the miss the key issue.  It’s not really about how to; far more often, it’s about whether we have the heart to.

We all know how to please our mate, but do we have the heart to?

Most wives and husbands know what their husbands/wives want.  Most have a basic understanding of how to please him or her. The real question is, do you have the heart to do what you know how to do?

When we first laid eyes on our spouses and decided to make them ours, we found a way to attract and maintain their attention.  We had far less knowledge of our spouses then than we have today-but we also had the heart then, and that made all the difference.

Where is your heart?  Take time to ask God how he thinks you’re doing?

One thought on “The Hear To

  1. Man, that is a good point… “We had far less knowledge of our spouses then than we have today-but we also had the heart then, and that made all the difference.” That is really true. I know what I should do sometimes, but don’t always do it. Whereas before I didn’t even know what to do, but would do stuff. I should start putting the two together more!
