What does love look like? ?❤️
Heidi Baker is a living legend who has given her life for the lost, hungry, and abandoned masses of Mozambique. She is also a dear friend of our family. As a public figure and therapist, I’ve had the privilege of getting to know some of the most famous and successful leaders in business and ministry. It’s been a thrill and a privilege. I’ve rarely been disappointed with them because my dad always told me, “All men bleed red.” They are all very normal people who do extraordinary things. Heidi Baker once said something so simple and profound that it never left me: “Love looks like something.”
What does love look like to you?
The Bible says this about love: “‘But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.’” (Luke 6:35, NKJV)
Dr. Gary Chapman once wrote a book about the five love languages. In it, he teaches that love looks different to all of us. To a single mom, it could be a gift of groceries. To a lonely wife, it could be more time with her husband. To a busy dad, it could be helping with the household chores or a simple “I love you.” Love looks like something. The secret of showing love is to “find out the love language of family and friends” and speak their languages.
It’s really not more complicated than taking a little time to listen to those you really care about.
What’s your love language? Is it one of the following?
- Words of Affirmation
- Acts of Service
- Quality Time
- Physical Touch
What are your family’s love languages? Could you commit to do three loving things every day and watch the impact of love?
I’m praying you will learn how to identify the love languages of others and speak a new language to transform their lives.
Because you’re a miracle.
