Lenten "Love Dare" ~ Day 22

Day 22
"Love is Faithful"
"I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the Lord."
~ Hosea 2:20

"He (God) showers His favor on us without measure, though in return we often don't pay attention. At times we have acted shamefully and deemed His love an intrusion, as if it's keeping us from what we really want. We have rejected Him in many ways - even after receiving His gift of eternal salvation - and yet He still loves us. He remains faithful."

Today's Dare:
"Love is a choice, not a feeling. It is an initiated action, not a knee-jerk reaction. Choose today to be committed to love even if your spouse has lost most of their interest in receiving it. Say to them today in words similar to these, "I love you. Period. I chose to love you even if you don't love me in return."
