THE LOVE DARE
40 Days Love Journey
Day 1: Love is patient
Be completely humble and gentle; be
patient, bearing with one another in love.
—Ephesians 4:2 NIV
TODAY’S DARE
The first part of this dare is fairly simple.
Although love is communicated in a
number of ways, our words often reflect
the condition of our heart. For the next
day, resolve to demonstrate patience and
to say nothing negative to your spouse at
all. If the temptation arises, choose not to
say anything. It’s better to hold your
tongue than to say something you’ll
regret


Day 2: Love is kind
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted,
forgiving each other, just as God in
Christ also has forgiven you.
—Ephesians 4:32
TODAY’S DARE
In addition to saying nothing negative to
your spouse again today, do at least one
unexpected gesture as an act of kindness.


Day 3: Love is not selfish
Be devoted to one another in brotherly
love; give preference to one another in
honor.
—Romans 12:10
TODAY’S DARE
Whatever you put your time, energy, and
money into will become more important
to you. It’s hard to care for something
you are not investing in. Along with
restraining from negative comments, buy
your spouse something that says, “I was
thinking of you today.”


Day 4: Love is thoughtful
How precious also are Your thoughts to
me. . . .How vast is the sum of them! If I
should count them, they would
outnumber the sand.
—Psalm 139:17–18
TODAY’S DARE
Contact your spouse sometime during
the business of the day. Have no agenda
other than asking how he or she is doing
and if there is anything you could do for
them.


Day 5: Love is not rude
He who blesses his friend with a loud
voice early in the morning, it will be
reckoned a curse to him.
—Proverbs 27:14
TODAY’S DARE
Ask your spouse to tell you three things
that cause him or her to be
uncomfortable or irritated with you. You
must do so without attacking them or
justifying your behavior. This is from
their perspective only.


Day 6: Love is not irritable
He who is slow to anger is better than
the mighty, and he who rules his spirit,
than he who captures a city.
—Proverbs 16:32
TODAY’S DARE
Choose today to react to tough
circumstances in your marriage in loving
ways instead of with irritation. Begin by
making a list below of areas where you
need to add margin to your schedule.
Then list any wrong motivations that you
need to release from your life.


Day 7: Love believes the
best
[Love] believes all things, hopes all
things.
—1 Corinthians 13:7
TODAY’S DARE
For today’s dare, get two sheets of paper.
On the first one, spend a few minutes
writing out positive things about your
spouse. Then do the same with negative
things on the second sheet. Place both
sheets in a secret place for another day.
There is a different purpose and plan for
each. At some point during the
remainder of the day, pick a positive
attribute from the first list and thank
your spouse for having this characteristic.


Day 8: Love is not jealous
Love is as strong as death, its jealousy
unyielding as the grave. It burns like
blazing fire.
—Song of Solomon 8:6 NIV
TODAY’S DARE
Determine to become your spouse’s
biggest fan and to reject any thoughts of
jealousy. To help you set your heart on
your spouse and focus on their
achievements, take yesterday’s list of
negative attributes and discreetly burn it.
Then share with your spouse how glad
you are about a success he or she
recently enjoyed.


Day 9: Love makes good
impressions
Greet one another with a kiss of love.
—1 Peter 5:14
TODAY’S DARE
Think of a specific way you’d like to
greet your spouse today. Do it with a
smile and with enthusiasm. Then
determine to change your greeting to
reflect your love for them.

unconditional

us, in that while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us.

favorite dessert. Fold the laundry.

joy of being their partner in marriage.


Day 11: Love cherishes
Husbands ought also to love their own
wives as their own bodies.
—Ephesians 5:28

to stand.

days of your fleeting life.

way . . . and show her honor as a fellow
heir of the grace of life.
—1 Peter 3:7

to your spouse that is above your normal

her. It might be putting his clothes away
for him. It may be the way you listen and
speak in your communication. Show
your mate that he or she is highly
esteemed in your eyes.

Let us love one another, for love is from
God; and everyone who loves is born of
God and knows God.
—1 John 4:7
TODAY’S DARE
Look back over the dares from previous
days. Were there some that seemed
impossible to you? Have you realized
your need for God to change your heart
and to give you the ability to love? Ask
Him to show you where you stand with
Him, and ask for the strength and grace
to settle your eternal destination.

While we were still helpless, at the right
time Christ died for the ungodly.
—Romans 5:6

trust Jesus Christ for salvation. Dare to

God
The Lord will continually guide you, and
satisfy your desire.
—Isaiah 58:11

(Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). As
you do, immerse yourself in the love and
promises God has for you. This will add
to your growth as you walk with Him.


Day 22: Love is faithful
I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness.
Then you will know the Lord.
—Hosea 2:20
TODAY’S DARE
Love is a choice, not a feeling. It is an
initiated action, not a knee-jerk reaction.

interest in receiving it. Say to them today

Period. I choose to love you even if you
don’t love me in return.

lusts; but the one who does the will of
God lives forever.
—1 John 2:17
TODAY’S DARE

in your life and remove it. Single out
every lie you’ve swallowed in pursuing
forbidden pleasure and reject it. Lust
cannot be allowed to live in a back
bedroom. It must be killed and
destroyed—today—and replaced with
the sure promises of God and a heart
filled with His perfect love.


Day 25: Love forgives
What I have forgiven, if I have forgiven
anything, I did it for your sakes in the
presence of Christ.
—2 Corinthians 2:10

mate, forgive it today. Let it go. Just as
we ask Jesus to “forgive us our debts”

“forgive our debtors” each day as well.

your spouse in prison too long. Say from
your heart, “I choose to forgive.”

When you judge another, you condemn
yourself, since you, the judge, do the
same things.

wrongdoing. Ask for God’s forgiveness,
then humble yourself enough to admit
them to your spouse. Do it sincerely and

respond, make sure you cover your
responsibility in love. Even if they
respond with criticism, accept it by
receiving it as counsel.


Day 27: Love encourages
Guard my soul and deliver me; do not let
me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You.
—Psalm 25:20
TODAY’S DARE
Eliminate the poison of unrealistic
expectations in your home. Think of one
area where your spouse has told you

you’re sorry for being so hard on them
about it. Promise them you’ll seek to
understand, and assure them of your
unconditional love.

sacrifices
He laid down His life for us. We should
also lay down our lives for our brothers.
—1 John 3:16 HCSB
TODAY’S DARE
What is one of the greatest needs in your
spouse’s life right now? Is there a need
you could lift from their shoulders today
by a daring act of sacrifice on your part?

need.

Render service with a good attitude, as
to the Lord and not to men.
—Ephesians 6:7 HCSB

you the privilege of loving this one
special person—unconditionally, the
way He loves both of you.

they may be one even as We are.

marriage, and look on today as a fresh

same for them. And if appropriate,
discuss this matter openly, seeking God
for unity.

mother, and be joined to his wife; and
they shall become one flesh.
—Genesis 2:24
TODAY’S DARE
Is there a “leaving” issue you haven’t
been brave enough to conquer yet?

resolve to make it right. The oneness of
your marriage is dependent upon it.
Follow this with a commitment to your
spouse and to God to make your
marriage the top priority over every
other human relationship.


Day 32: Love meets sexual
needs
The husband must fulfill his duty to his
wife, and likewise also the wife to her
husband.
—1 Corinthians 7:3
TODAY’S DARE
If at all possible, try to initiate sex with
your husband or wife today. Do this in a
way that honors what your spouse has
told you (or implied to you) about what
they need from you sexually. Ask God to
make this enjoyable for both of you as
well as a path to greater intimacy.


Day 33: Love completes
each other
If two lie down together they keep warm,
but how can one be warm alone?
—Ecclesiastes 4:11
TODAY’S DARE
Recognize that your spouse is integral to
your future success. Let them know
today that you desire to include them in
your upcoming decisions, and that you
need their perspective and counsel. If
you have ignored their input in the past,
admit your oversight and ask them to
forgive you.


Day 34: Love celebrates
godliness
[Love] does not rejoice in
unrighteousness, but rejoices with the
truth.
—1 Corinthians 13:6

Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with
many advisers they succeed.
—Proverbs 15:22 NIV

During this process, ask God to direct
your decisions and discernment.


Day 36: Love is God’s
Word
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a
light to my path.
—Psalm 119:105
TODAY’S DARE
Commit to reading the Bible every day.

spouse is open to it, see if they will
commit to daily Bible reading with you.
Begin submitting each area of your life
to its guidance and start building on the
rock.

prayer
If two of you agree on earth about
anything that they may ask, it shall be
done for them by My Father.
—Matthew 18:19
TODAY’S DARE
Ask your spouse if you can begin
praying together. Talk about the best
time to do this, whether it’s in the
morning, your lunch hour, or before
bedtime. Use this time to commit your
concerns, disagreements, and needs
before the Lord. Don’t forget to thank
Him for His provision and blessing.
Even if your spouse refuses to do this,
resolve to spend this daily time in prayer
yourself.


Day 38: Love fulfills
dreams
Delight yourself in the Lord; and He will
give you the desires of your heart.
—Psalm 37:4

Love never fails.
—1 Corinthians 13:8
TODAY’S DARE

your mate will find it.

Where you go, I will go, and where you
lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be
my people, and your God, my God.
—Ruth 1:16
TODAY’S DARE
Write out a renewal of your vows and
place them in your home. Perhaps, if
appropriate, you could make
arrangements to formally renew your
wedding vows before a minister and with
family present. Make it a living
testament to the value of marriage in
God’s eyes and the high honor of being
one with your mate.
