Selfless NOT Selfish

“Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified I have not coveted anyone’s silver or gold clothing you yourselves know that these hands of mine have supplied my own needs and the needs of my companions. In everything I did I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”~ (Acts 20:32-35)

Father, we thank you for the writings, and huge faith that you reflect in the Apostle Paul’s letter, orations and selfless sacrifices as he followed your son Jesus in and through all kinds of hardships and crucible moments. This selfless sacrifice is in strict parallel to how we must serve one another in Marriage under a selfless not selfish, servitude heart. This world is distracting us as Husband & Wife from serving one another as we should, in a manner of selflessness. We desire your will in our Marriage. We abandon an idea of a 50/50 share of who does what in Marriage and take on the form of serving 150% in all that we do for one another as Husband & Wife. Remembering that the world, our jobs, material things, and worldly validations will all pass away, but the hope & glory of our Faith in Jesus will remain forever. WedingRingsRebuke any selfish, deceitful, knit-picking ways that have formed in our marriage and allow us to be clear and free to see what the other needs daily. Marriage is not only a commitment to your over-sounding Truth Father, it is a commitment to honest morality, TRUTH, and a VOW to morals, values and character actions that can change generations. Teach us to walk in the overall TRUTH of Marriage this day. Help us to not covet another’s husband/wife, or their marriages. This is fleeting, and gives me a false illusion of what we think you have designed for our married love. Help us to stand firm in the purpose that you have created for us as Husband & Wife and like Paul remember that it is better to give than to receive. Pic14Activate a giving spirit in us as Husbands and Wives today. Teach us to give of our selves selflessly not seeking anything in return, remembering that a Heart that gives with no validation or seeking approval from another is blessed because all Glory, all approvals come from you. We ask these and all Blessings…….. ~In Jesus name we pray, Amen~
