♥ ♥ ♥ 11 days to Valentine’s Day! ♥ ♥ ♥
My husband and I have been reading and talking through Philippians. Lately we’ve talked a lot about selfishness vs. servanthood.
This one verse stood out to me. Paul is talking about Timothy.
For I have no one like him, who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare. Philippians 2:10 ESV
… genuinely concerned for your welfare.
Do I do that for my husband? Do I genuinely care about him, his needs, his dreams, his projects, etc.?
It’s not that we can’t or shouldn’t take care of our own needs. It’s not that we shouldn’t ask for what we need.
It’s just that we need to also be willing to move out beyond our own needs into servanthood and care about the well being of our husbands.
What that means practically for me is that I take the time to watch and listen, to learn about him and his day, to learn about the responsibilities that he carries. I can pray. I can help (sometimes). I can be there for him. It’s not just about me.
