Song of Solomon 1:15-16 15 Behold, you are fair, my love! Behold, you are fair! You have dove’s eyes. THE Shulamite 16 Behold, you are handsome, my beloved! Yes, pleasant! Also our bed is green.
High on God’s relationship radar is the relationship between a husband and wife. There is no relationship of greater intimacy than that shared by a man and woman who have surrendered their life together in the sight of God. Nothing strengthens that relationship like the refreshing words of COMPLIMENT.
Try it…live it…say it…compliment your spouse on something really neat about them…its Biblical!
Song of Solomon is a book about the love relationship between a husband and wife. In today’s verse we see mutual compliments, “Behold, you are fair, my love! Behold, you are fair! You have dove’s eyes. THE Shulamite. Behold, you are handsome, my beloved! Yes, pleasant! Also our bed is green.”
Complimenting the ONE we love ought to be as easy as breathing in and breathing out. Men when she wears that new dress and comes walking by you…it’s time for a compliment. Ladies when his socks match his pants it’s time for a compliment…hahahahaha.
It ought to be so easy to compliment my wife. I should never get so busy that rush through the day not notice one thing that prompts me to say, “Wow, that looks good on you.” I know you can find those little things your spouse does, that if missing in your life it leaves a void. That is an opportunity for a compliment.
Listen to the mutual compliment of today’s couple one more time, “Behold, you are fair, my love! Behold, you are fair! You have dove’s eyes. THE Shulamite…Behold, you are handsome, my beloved! Yes, pleasant! Also our bed is green.”
Father, help me honor my spouse with compliments and gratitude today…thank you for the LOVE that we share…a LOVE that is a gift from YOU…In Jesus Name..Amen!!!
