Top 10 Reasons to Date Your Wife Frequently
By Carwin Dover
The hecticness of work, community service projects, church activities and
family often relegates a marriage relationship to the bottom of the list.
At times, it is necessary to give attention to others. It is also important
to keep something else in mind: Your spouse is the one most likely to be
with you when you are teetering around with a cane! With that in mind, take
time to date your spouse regularly. Here are a few reasons why.
1. Marriage Relationships are Dynamic. They are alive and
always changing. They need to be fed and stimulated to stay alive.
2. There is Always Something New about Your Spouse. Dating
is a good way to create a safe environment. Your spouse is more likely to
let you know "what's new!"
3. Invest in the Future. Just like a savings account —
it is easier to add a little to an existing account and watch it grow than
to start a new one from scratch. That's because the interest grows exponentially
4. You got Married Because You Dated! It only stands to
reason that a good way to stay married is to keep dating.
5. Marriage can be Compared to a Set of Tires. During the
course of driving, there is normal wear and tear. Dating serves to maintain
alignment, balance and pressure. When done well, your marriage will last
6. Dating is an Opportunity to Focus. Day in and day out,
distractions pull your attention away from your spouse. Dates help refocus
on the person at the top of your priority list.
7. Remember the Good Times! A good date will often bring
up pre-marriage memories. Recalling memories can generate anticipation for
your next meeting.
8. Create Your Future. Dates lay the framework for future
family gatherings. Great dates attract your spouse and family to want to
spend time with you.
9. Laughter is the Best Medicine. Reader's Digest says
so! It must be true. Laughing together makes it possible to hurt together
when you must.
10. Remind Your Spouse, "I Love You!" There are many ways
to say, "I love you!"
A date is one of the special ways to out honor your spouse. Try it this
week! Set up 5 dates with your spouse for the next four weeks. Reserve them.
Plan. Anticipate. Have fun!

When do you feel closest to God?
When do you feel the farthest from God?
What can I pray about for you? What can we pray about together?
Are you involved in ministry? Discuss with your spouse: Can you serve together at your church? Take next steps.
We are made right with God when we believe that Jesus shed his blood . . .
for us. Romans 3:25
People are declared righteous because of their faith, not because of their work.
Getting right with God starts with admitting you can do nothing to save yourself.
You need Jesus to make you clean.
