Love Dare - Dare 17 Love Promotes Intimacy

Day 17: Love promotes intimacy
He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.
 —Proverbs 17:9 NIV

Determine to guard your mate’s secrets (unless they are dangerous to them or to you) and to pray for them. Talk with your spouse, and resolve to demonstrate love in spite of these issues. Really listen to them when they share personal thoughts and struggles with you. Make them feel safe.

This is something the hubs and I do not have to worry about. The hubs and I started out first as friends and have remained for the most part. When our marriage was at its worst it was because we were not as good as friends as we should be. Now that we have worked on our friendship, our marriage has strengthen. We can talk to each other knowing that we are safe. The listening ears we have for each other are not judgmental or mean. With listen with our hearts and understand that our friendship comes before our marriage. That is what makes it work for us.
