A Better Way Pt 3.

A Better Way Pt 3.

Take One Step Closer

Ecclesiastes 9:9 NIV
9 Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun—all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.

Marital satisfaction depends on factors and skills couples can do something about in any season or stage of life.

Song of Songs 2:14 NIV
14 My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.

We get our news today from algorithms and cable news networks that reinforce our biases, which means we only listen to news we agree with.

Proverbs 18:13 NIV
13 To answer before listening— that is folly and shame.

Proverbs 20:5 NIV
5 The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.

Proverbs 18:2 NIV
2 Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions.

Healthy people aren’t threatened by the opinions of others.

Listening to you doesn’t mean that I agree with you.

Disagreeing with you doesn’t mean that I hate you.

I will validate your
feelings when I don’t agree
with your opinions.

I will listen to
your opinions without
seeing it as an
attack on mine.

The smile on your face
lets me know that you need me

There’s a truth in your eyes
saying you’ll never leave me

A touch of your hand
says you’ll catch me if ever I fall

Now you say it best
when you say nothing at all

“Smile on your face”
“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.”
Proverbs 15:13

“Truth in your eyes”
“Bright eyes gladden the heart…”
Proverbs 15:30 (NASB)

“Touch of your hand”
“His left arm is under my head,
and his right arm embraces me.”
Song of Solomon 2:6
