The Language We Speak

Jesus said, “As often as you do it unto one of the least of these my brothers, you do it unto me.” We love God by loving others. However, how we express love will depend on our Love Language. My Love Language is Words of Affirmation. Therefore, I find myself freely giving encouraging words to those I meet. My wife’s Love Language is Acts of Service. So, she is always doing things to help people.

I have a friend who is always giving gifts. And another, who loves to take people to lunch and spend time listening as they share their stories. And yet another, who is always giving people hugs and pats on the back. All of us are loving God by loving others. We differ only in the Love Language we speak.
