Engage with Intellectual Intimacy

This type of “in-too-me-see” (intimacy) is the activity of connecting with one another through discussing topics or issues. The topics can be surface level or incredibly serious (i.e. faith beliefs, pro-life position, pre- or post- tribulation), but tie that binds in a relationship is reinforced when check the position or thoughts your spouse. Looking for similarities.

Oftentimes, the couple is getting to know each other, however everything is not discussed in the beginning or there may be some life event that changes an opinion. As time passes, couples often assume they know how their spouse thinks on every issue, and they cease exploring each other’s intellectual worlds. A good spouse can often predict generally what the other will think on a particular issue, a good example is when they go out shopping can they bring you home something that you like?

Ruth 2:11-12

And Boaz answered and said unto her, it hath fully been shewed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore. The Lord recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.

Jehovah, Lord, master and relational God (Genesis 2:4); we thank You for connecting us through intellectual intimacy. We praise You for this daily bread and the ideas behind them as we look to You for guidance concerning our intimacy. We declare blessings for Thy work and Your acknowledgement that never fails so that in all we do You will get the Glory, now and forever. This we pray with an anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ our Savior, Amen.
