Scriptures:

  • Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.1 Peter 3:7 (NKJV)

 

  • I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.Romans 7:15 (NIV)

 

  • Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.1 John 4:20 (NIV)

 

  • Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.James 5:16 (NIV)

 

  • How could one man chase a thousand,

    or two put ten thousand to flight,
    unless their Rock had sold them,
    unless the Lord had given them up?”Deuteronomy 32:30 (NIV)

  • For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.Matthew 18:20 (NIV)

 

Hold Yourself Accountable:

  • Do the work to gain the knowledge and understanding of what true intimacy is.

 

Apply the Kingdom Principle:

  • Blessed are those who find wisdom,
    those who gain understanding,
    14 for she is more profitable than silver
    and yields better returns than gold.” –
    Proverbs 3:13-14 (NIV)
