Glass of Water

"...rather, serve one another in love" (Galatians 5:13b).
"Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ" (Ephesians 5:21).

It may seem simple to others, but it's not to me.
It's a simple act, but it's still an act of serving.
Every night, he faithfully offers and brings me a glass of cold water. It's a gesture that I often take for granted, even though I truly appreciate it.

One of the most difficult things to do in a marriage is to put the other person's needs before our own. It's all about "my time", or how he/she has hurt "me". God calls us to serve one another in love (even when we don't feel like it).

I pray that I can be less selfish in my marriage and in all my relationships and I am thankful for my glass of water every night!
