- Keeping score is a unhealthy game that bleeds into every part of your relationship and tangles everyone up in their own insecurities at the same time.
- Scorekeeping makes you feel like you have to perform to keep the peace or receive love. It isn’t only exhausting, it also makes you second guess your actions, tangling your self-confidence.
- 1 Corinthians 13:5 says this about love: “It isn’t rude. It doesn’t think about itself. It isn’t irritable. It doesn’t keep track of wrongs.” Truth is, we can’t score-keep and truly love others at the same time.
