Romans 12:10; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; 1 John 3:18; Matthew 13:31-32
1. “Yea, I’ll get to them tomorrow!” or, “Okay, I’ll take care of them tonight” — When it comes to doing dishes, which type are you? Do you need to be asked to do tasks like the dishes? Or do you sometimes do them without being asked?
2. Read Romans 12:10. What are some intentions you haven’t turned into actions in your marriage? How could you close that gap?
3. Read 1 Thessalonians 5:11. Is it harder for you to give or receive words of encouragement or kindness? Why?
4. Read 1 John 3:18. What practical “little things” mean the most to you? Why do these little things speak to you so deeply? Similarly, what practical “little things” can you do that mean a lot to your spouse (if you don’t know, ask)?
Read Matthew 13:31-32. How do the little things in marriage, consistently done, act like the mustard seed in Jesus’ parable? How do the little things build trust, happiness, comfort, peace, loyalty, etc.? How do they help a marriage thrive?
