Day 8-Love is not jealous

There are two kinds of jealousy legitimate, and illegitimate. The first is based upon love and is felt when loved one turns their head from you, replacing you with another. A husband who has an affair may have a jealous wife, who is justified in her feelings. The type of jealousy this dare refers to is illegitimate jealousy, or that which is motivated by envy. Jealousy because another is more popular, more beautiful, richer, etc. This type of jealousy leads to hateful feelings. We should not be jealous of our spouses victories. We signed up to be their biggest cheerleader!

Today's Dare-

Determine to become your spouse's biggest fan and reject any thoughts of jealousy. To help you set your heart on your spouse and focus on their achievements, take yesterday's list of negative attributes and discreetly burn it. Then share with your spouse how glad you are about a success he or she recently enjoyed.
