In the corporate world employees have an evaluation of their work performance. There is a two-step process that involves a self-evaluation, followed by an employer evaluation, in order to identify areas of improvement and encourage professional growth. It’s also important for spouses to continuously evaluate their love in their marriage and grow closer.
- Review 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (TLB)
“Love is very patient and kind,
never jealous or envious,
never boastful or proud,
never haughty or selfish or rude.
Love does not demand its own way.
It is not irritable or touchy.
It does not hold grudges and
will hardly even notice when others do it wrong.
It is never glad about injustice,
but rejoices whenever truth wins out.
If you love someone,
you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost.
You will always believe in him,
always expect the best of him,
and always stand your ground in defending him.”
- Personalize the scripture by adding your name
(Example: since my name is Charmayne I will use my name). “Charmayne is very patient and kind, Charmayne is never jealous or envious…”
- Identify and write down the areas of “love” toward your husband that need improvement. (Click Here to Purchase a Wife UP journal!)
(Example: I’m not very patient and I can be irritable at times towards my husband. Therefore, I can improve in my patience and be more easygoing).
4. Use those areas as your goal to improve for this year.
a. Write two ways that you can improve in your areas of love.
(Example: I will become more easygoing by reserving 1 hour of open communication with my husband every day without technology).
b. Establish a date of when you want to show improvement.
5. Schedule a calendar reminder to re-evaluate your love again.
