When we really love our people, we go above and beyond to show them we care. But sometimes, loving and serving others isn't easy, especially when it seems like we are the one putting the majority of the effort into the relationship.

But ... are we really understanding or appreciating the way others might be loving or serving us back, in their own unique way? Today on the Proverbs 31 Ministries Podcast, our friend Amanda Bacon shares the three problems we face when our expectations aren't met, and how to love and live freely out of an overflow of Christ's sacrificial love for us.

When we read the Bible, we often think of Jesus as only being physically present in the New Testament … but did you know He was actually active in the Old Testament from the beginning? It’s so important to study how Jesus makes His presence known in every part of Scripture because this will help us experience more of His presence in our day-to-day lives right now. Our next ministry-wide Bible study by Lysa TerKeurst and Joel Muddamalle, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament, starts January 10!  Order your study guide now!
