7 ways to communicate LOVE

Love is the most important part of life. We all tend to agree on that, but we can rarely seem to agree on what “love” actually means. I recently wrote a book called The Seven Laws of Love: Essential Principles for Building Stronger Relationships where I started by looking at everything the Bible (the ultimately love and relationship manual) has to say on the subject.

Here are some of the most famous words ever written about love. Within in them, God is giving us a timeless roadmap for building stronger relationships. Below are seven very simple and practical ways to put these words into action in our daily lives and our relationships.

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Here’s how we put love into practice (it’s simpler than you might think):

1. Love is patient, so in our rushed world, be patient with people.

2. Love is kind, so in our sarcastic and often rude world, show genuine kindness to people.

3. Love is not jealous or proud, so in our self-focused world, put the needs of other ahead of your own.

4. Love keeps no record of wrongs, so in our world full of grudges and bitterness, choose to offer grace.

5. Love rejoices in the truth, so in our world of dishonesty, always tell the truth and fight for trust in relationships.

6. Love never loses faith, so in our world of skeptics and cynics, choose to believe in the presence of God and the power of love.

7. Love endures through every circumstance, so in our world of quitters, stay committed and never give up on yourself or your loved ones!

    Amen!

    That humanity is still asking the question: What is Love, strongly suggests that human nature is in some serious deficit as to the primary understanding of that idea and ideal. One can hardly doubt that God would have a particular interest in getting that right, yet what remains missing from Christology is any insight into the Single ‘Law of Love’ that existed from the beginning before the Fall and brought us into direct union with God via some concept of spiritual union that existing religious ideas have failed to illuminate.

    Marriage between a man and woman, as an ideal of relationship that it should be . . . isn’t! The high aspirations and expectations that two bring to this relationship are easily worn down by the weight of contradictory realities that too often prevent human flourishing for both men and especially women. And the failure/divorce rate for this union speaks loud and clear. There is a problem? And existing religion, tied to a failed natural law paradigm, doesn’t have an answer!

    Robert, your words are so very true that there is none, no, not one worldly human being that has understanding of what love mean, is, and must have actions to make it more than just a word billions use; and especially religious people that never do one deed to back what they speak. Psalms 14:2-3 well describes how our Father views all worldly people, whereas Colossians 3:1-4 makes clear whom is no longer of this world.

    Thanks for some words of wisdom.

    Through over 25 years of private studies with these past 9 becoming totally disassociated with all human religions; all that our Father Yehovah Elohim [God] has been showing me through many experiences is exactly how He sees this world of Christians being talkers rather than doers as instructed; thus having zero love for others while coveting all earthly things. James 1:22-25 and 2:14-26 speaks sound truth.
