We buy them gifts and don't really even think about the cost.
We sacrifice sleep and time with friends and who knows what else, just so we can be with them.
We put their desires before our own.
And it's easy.
But something happens when we get married. Those nice things we used to do for our significant other no longer feel so easy.
Now, they feel a lot more like work.
And let's be honest. When we've been working all day (either at an office or at home with the kids), the last thing we want to do at the end of the day is more work. We'd much rather sit in front of a TV or browse Pinterest.
The problem, though, is that if we don't put in the work, we won't reap the rewards.
So this week, I want to encourage you in your marriage: go back and do what you used to do.
If you used to leave nice notes for him, write him one and put it in his wallet.
If you used to give her foot rubs, offer one today (without expecting anything in return).
If you used to buy him his favorite candy bar, pick one up the next time you go to the store.
Whatever you used to do for your spouse before you were married, start doing it again. The little things might just add up and make a big difference.
Let's talk. What is one nice thing you plan to do for your spouse this week?
