Ask yourself this question; Am I the greatest? Without knowing what I am speaking of, most of us would answer, Yes!….Absolutely!….Of course I am! Now, let me ask specifics. Are you the greatest in your marriage? I dont mean greatest in superiority, but are you your spouses greatest encourager? Greatest supporter? Greatest prayer partner? Greatest friend? Now, I would hope that your answer is still, Yes!…Absolutely!…Of course I am! Simply because, You should be!
Jesus was and is the greatest example of love, encouragement and friend that we can ever have. As a matter of fact, he loves us so much that he calls us friend! His love should provoke us to be the greatest of all things to each other.
Oftentimes, we have every intention and truly desire to be all that we can to our spouse. Sometimes we simply dont know HOW. If you feel like you have been trying and not getting far, maybe you are trying in your own strength. Allow Jesus, your greatest love, to help you be the greatest in all of these things to your spouse. If you ask, believing He can, then He surely will.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33 (NLT)
