From Jim’s Heart – Your Wife, Your Friend

How would you define intimacy? If you’re like most men, you probably think of terms of sexual intimacy or lovemaking. While that is a part of intimacy, there’s definitely more to the definition. It also refers to great closeness—the kind that the closest of friends share, in which they feel they can talk about anything.

Are you enjoying that kind of friendship with your wife? Sometimes the friendship part of marriages goes through a dry spell, but this doesn’t need to last. Purpose in your heart to cultivate both friendship and marital intimacy with your wife. Build the kind of relationship where she can say of you, “This is my beloved, and this is my friend” (Song of Solomon 5:16).

God, you can make all things new –
including my friendship with my wife.
As You renew us individually day by day,
may our relationship also experience new life as we follow You.
