Today we pray for Love (page 27).
I grew up not wanting to be touched. Don't ask me why! Then I married a man whose primary love language is touch and now I can see my son yearns for that. I want to love my son using his love language. I can best teach him about God when I use his love language to love him.
I've thought for years that love can't really be all that it should be apart from God. The Bible says that God IS love. For us mathematicians, using the word "IS" is the same as using the word "EQUALS." In other words,God and love are one and the same. There is no real love apart from God, and God is behind all real and genuine acts of love.
"Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love." ~1 John 4:8
Question for Discussion:
*What is your son's primary love language? How do you think you can use that to teach your son(s) about God's love? (At this time when they are so little you can practice using all of them, but do you see any emerging?)
*Words of Affirmation
*Acts of service
Tomorrow (9/16) we pray for Joy (page 28) and it's Link UP day!
