Two of Us: Being Better

In what ways can I improve my behaviors and attitudes for the benefit of both my spouse and my family?

Reflect

Separately, say the prayer and spend some time reflecting on the questions. 
Write some notes and then share your answers more fully with your spouse.
 
 

Prayer

I know You want the best for me. 
You are the greatest Father in the world
and You have the highest hopes and ambitions for me. 
Father, a lot of times I settle for what I think life is all about. 
I do my thing. Help me to do Your thing. 
Let me take on Your plans for me. 
I am going to send Your Son to speak for me.  Amen.
