Make Room for His Preferences

August 16, 2011

in the generous life

© Adambooth | Dreamstime.comMy husband, The Generous Husband, had a nice post recently about preferences. I’ve changed the gender so that it’s readable for us.

You and your [husband] each have preferences – on what kind restaurant to go to, what movie to see, how to hang the toilet paper, and so on.  How often do your preferences “win out”? Is it more than half the time?  Be radical – make it a goal to go with [his] preferences more than half the time.

Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.  Philippians 2:3 ESV

This is great advice! Something I have had trouble with but am going to change. Thanks for the reminder.

@Cindy Wow! Thanks so much for the mention and badge. I’ve just become aware of y’all because of your tweets. Keep up the great encouragement for those struggling with infidelity (and those who are working to guard their marriages).
