FEBRUARY DEVOTION: What Your Wife Needs from You by Natalie Burnett
Day 2 - Your wife needs a date!
Text your wife right now. Ask her to check the calendar for your next free evening and plan a date. Trust me, she’ll think it’s the hottest thing!
There is no biblical evidence for taking your wife to Applebee’s on a Friday night. However, there is evidence for the need for togetherness and intimacy. That only comes with intentional, uninterrupted time together.
There are a few ways to date your wife. First, plan a special night out. Do something you did before you got married. See a movie, get ice cream, sit at Starbucks. Do something that does not involve your children, grocery shopping, or home improvement. Second, you can date your wife without even leaving the house. Pick an evening that you can do something just the two of you. If you have kids at home, put them to bed early, or lock them out of your room. Watch a movie, play a game, cook dinner together. Dating doesn’t have to be expensive. Be creative.
Let me tell you, there are not many more things that will make your wife feel special than you planning time just for her. Take the initiative to make her a priority.
Mirriam Webster defines the word cleave as “to adhere firmly and closely or loyally and unwaveringly.” Genesis tells us, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:24 KJV). Dating your wife, spending uninterrupted intentional time allows you to adhere unwaveringly to each other. Trust me. Text her now!
