Honoring others in love.

 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;

Romans 12:10

The kind of love that the Bible is talking about here is not a feeling of love but a choice of love. 

Recently, this little one slid her bowl of Cheerios across to me.  It was an unexpected gesture that filled my heart. This week, whether I show a random act of kindness to someone else or offer tokens of love to my sweetheart and family, putting others above myself is a way of honouring God.   

It is even more special when we show love to others in ways that they most feel loved.

 Dr Gary Chapman in his book The Five Love Languages explains how each of us feels loved in different ways.  

Words of affirmation
Quality Time
Receiving Gifts
Acts of Service
Affection

May you find joy this week in finding simple ways to love those around you! 

Do you have a sweet idea? We would love to hear it.  Let's pass on our ideas to one another.

  1. Most of us would take all of the above, but there may just be one that stands out. I read the book by Gary Chapman years ago, and it is good to be reminded of it now. When two people who have different love languages live together, some of the love one thinks he/she are showing might be lost on the other. To do to others as we would want them to do to us helps, but to realize and act upon what speaks loudest to the other is going the extra mile.
    Thank you, Lovella for putting these thoughts together today.
