He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

I Serve You, Part 3

Pro 4:23 Keep (guard) your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life

To conclude this short series, What you TREASURE (value) and GUARD (protect) requires NURTURING (cultivation). NURTURING is the ability to aid in growth and development. This entails investing even more as you realize that you are not obligated to remain stagnant forever. Journeying through life leads to new discoveries each day. Those who aspire for something better seek out opportunities and avenues for exploration as they uncover more.

Marriage is a continuous journey of discovery. Just as a gardener nurtures a growing flower by tending to it, watering it, and creating the ideal conditions, to allow the flower to reveal its utmost beauty that would not be possible without nurturing. You can nurture hope, maintaining a positive outlook even in challenging circumstances.

Treasuring, guarding and nurturing are all ways of expressing love (service). If you are married or in a relationship, ask yourself, do you truly value your spouse and your marriage? Do you protect it at all costs? Are you nurturing each other to enable further growth? There is still more work to be done, so continue to serve one another.
