“Is there anything I can do for you today?”

My husband often asks me that question. I don’t usually have anything for him to do, but just that he asked means a lot to me. He is so good at practicing kindness. In a marriage kindness is a critical key. It is about thinking about the other person before yourself and about how to actively participate in someone else’s life to make it better for them. Then you actually do it. It can be something simple, like holding a door open. Or it can be more complex, such as purchasing something for the other person you know would be meaningful. It could just be choosing to put the other person’s likes ahead of your own.

Kindness spotlights that I care more about you than I do my own desires. These same principles carry over into other relationships, such as showing kindness in marriage. Putting others before yourself and seeing how you can meet their needs is a major part of showing that you genuinely care for others.
