Funny Story about love (made Pickup lines)

1, Give Without Expecting Anything In Return

All day long he craves for more, but the righteous give without sparing.” - Proverbs 21:26
The first way that we can love our spouse is doing those little things that we all know mattered to one another. We give up our time to serve each other. Men instead of coming home from work and just plopping down on the sofa we could help do the dishes after the meal or fold a load of laundry. When we help do what they may normally do we are showing our love by giving.

2. Trust your Spouse Without Wavering

“Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians 13:7
Let your spouse know that you trust their decisions, do second guess what they are doing, but instead jump in and support them. Let your spouse know that you Have faith in them. This shows them love.

3. Forgive your Spouse Without Punishing.

“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”Colossians 3:13-14
Its not hard for any of us to remember that we are married to an imperfect sinner, and yet it seems very easy to forget that we are also an imperfect sinner. In order for each of us to love one another we must be willing to forgive each other fully without wanting to punishing each other for what they have done.

4. Listen to your spouse Without Interrupting

Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions.” Proverbs 18:2
When wife or husband is speaking love them enough to not interrupt what they are saying and instead give them ALL your attention as you listen. . Do not just listen to answer, but listen to help one another.

5. Enjoy Spending time together Without Complaining

“Do everything without grumbling or arguing” – Philippians 2:14
Don’t waste your conversations on all the bad stuff going on in your life. Spend your time together building each other up and enjoying the blessings God has given you in your relationship

6. Answer One Another Without Arguing

“Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting, with strife.”Proverbs 17:1
There is nothing worse to me than a a friend who always has to be right. And they will never stop talking until everyone knows they are right.
When you are having a conversation with your spouse on a topic that you do not necessarily agree, answer one another understanding and kindness. Do not raise your voice or get upset with each other. Instead walk through your issues in a loving way that preferences your spouse.

7. Keep your Promises

“My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips”Psalm 89:34
When you make a promise to your spouse, it should be your number one priority in your relationship to keep that promise. Idk you say you will be home at 5 from work than make sure you are home at 5 from work. If you say you will have the kitchen clean than clean clean the kitchen, the list of promises we make one another in our relationships can go on and On. A loving spouse is trustworthy- they Do the things that you say they will do.

8. Speak to One another without Accusing

“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,”James 1:19
When you get upset with one another , do not act out of anger. Take a deep breath and a step back. Speak kindly to each other and do not accuse one another of wrong doing. When we love one another we choose to Resolve the issue in a peaceful way.

9. Pray for your Spouse

“Confess your sins to one another and Pray for One another ” James 5:16
One of the most loving things you can do for your spouse is to pray for them. Pray for Gods Healing, pray for Gods protection, Pray for Gods Correction, And pray that they will grow in their own walk with Jesus,

10. Have Fun with One another

18 This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot. 19 Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil—this is a gift of God. 20 They seldom reflect on the days of their life, because God keeps them occupied with gladness of heart. Ecclesiastes 5:18-20
One of the best ways for you to love your spouse is to Enjoy your life together- Have fun as a couple. Do the things you love to do as a couple Because god gave them to you as a blessing in your life.


Love is not an emotion that we can find at times and loose at other times. Love is a choice that you can make every single day. Choose to love your spouse and enjoy you life together.
