Make it count!

Many times when you are married, you do something for your spouse that you really and truly just do not want to do.  The key when you do it is doing it with the right attitude.  I always say that if you don't do it with the right attitude, it doesn't even count.  I would rather do something alone than to do it with someone that I had to pull and coerce so much that they accompany me with the wrong attitude.

So make it count...  let it be a true sacrifice that is done with a good attitude.  Then your spouse can know that you not only did something you didn't want to do, but you didn't punish your spouse at the same time!

Challenge:  Do something you really and truly don't want to do with your spouse this week, and do it with an amazing over-the-top great attitude!  Make it count!

Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, “prompt to do it”) giver [whose heart is in his giving].”  (2Cor 9:7 AMP)
