Learn God’s Love Language For Others

As a Christmas gift to my wife and myself I bought a sort of marriage improvement book. It’s called “Love Language Minute Devotional.” It focuses on the fact that often times a husband and wife will appreciate things done or said in a totally different light than the way it was intended.

Since 3 is one of my favorite numbers and Valantines Day is 3 days away I thought I’d post the entries for these days. Many couples are thinking of ways they can impress their loved ones by some expression of Love on this  day. A Biblical approach and through seeking our Heavenly Father’s blessing on such an important subject is truly a good place to begin from. I read today’s and know it’s focus but haven’t looked at what the next 2 days will speak about, here goes.

Expressing Love

Let love be your highest goal!

1 Corinthians 14:1
Would you like to know your spouse’s love language? Then observe how he or she most often expresses love to you. Is it through words of affirmation? gifts? acts of service? quality time? or physical touch? The way a person expresses love to you is likely the way he or she wishes you would express your love.

If he often hugs and kisses you, his love language is probably physical touch. He wishes you would take initiative to hug and kiss him. If she is always weeding the flower beds, keeping the finances in order, or cleaning up the bathroom after you leave, then her love language is probably acts of service. She wishes that you would help her with the work around the house. If you don’t, then she feels unloved. One husband said, “If I had known that my taking out the garbage would make her feel loved and more responsive sexually, I would have started taking out the garbage years ago.” Too bad it took him so many years to learn his wife’s primary love language. As the Bible says, love should be our highest goal. To reach that goal, we need to put forth an effort to know how our spouse can best receive love.

Lord Jesus, help me to make love my highest goal—both in life and in my marriage. Please give me wisdom as I observe my spouse and try to figure out his or her love language. I want to love him or her well.

Jesus Is The Aleph & The Tav, The Alpha & The Omega, The First & The Last

If you’ve been married long enough at times, it hasn’t always been a bed of roses. Instead of resembling the Garden of Eden, sometimes it’s more like a barren desert. Maybe you’ll be able to relate to what I’m about to say. Connecting spiritually, mentally and emotionally with the person you are sharing your life with isn’t a certianty. It is possible to live, eat and sleep with someone and do daily life together at yet feel alone. That’s why learning your spouse’s Love Language is so important.

The fact is, We Are NEVER Alone. We have an Awesome Heavenly Father Who Sees every event of our life. He knows every concern of our weak hearts. He knows, before we even think them, our thoughts of loneliness and desires to feel loved. He is “El Roi,” the “God Who Sees,” and who Hagar meet at the well called Beer–lahai–roi. (Genesis 16:14) He is my Dear Heavenly Father, do you know Him?
