Love lets the other win

Guys…I wanted to add a little commentary to this particular dare. I have difficulty in this area. I have always struggled with conceding an argument especially when I knew (or thought) I was right. What has it proved? Almost nothing. What has it created? Almost nothing. Even if you are right about something, then is it really beneficial to create damage just so you can be declared right?

Demonstrate love by willingly choosing to give in to an area of disagreement between you and your spouse. Tell them you are putting their preference first.

Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others – Philippians 2:4

  1. I needed to hear this. I always like to prove who I think is right in a discussion/ disagreement.
    Many times it doesn’t help the situation.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Mike….thanks for your honesty. I have the tendency to take the same approach at times. I get more focused on defending my point that I miss the opportunity to connect with my wife.

      Thanks for reading and sharing.
