Gary Chapman’s book opened my eyes to all the love around me that I failed to see because it did not come with words.When I finally learned these languages I could hear, see and feel the love people around me “spoke” to me. I just had to learn to translate.
I also had to learn to speak more love languages fluently.
The most awesome thing? I was better able to understand all the ways my guy was telling me he loved me all along – and I could see that I was a top priority after all!
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience” (Colossians 3:12)
God made us a top priority. We are called to Pass that Forward – God first, then our spouses and next our children and finally our mission – those are our Top Priorities.
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her” (Ephesians 5:15)
If someone ever tells you that being an Unconditional Love Priority is unrealistic – just ask them, “Isn’t that how God wants us to treat each other? If I am a priority to God, then God wants me to be a priority to my husband, and He wants my husband, my children and Him to be my top priorities.”
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” (1 Cor 13:13)
Love Never Gives Up
Love Prioritizes, making you feel favored.
Unconditional Love gives priority status with time, prayer, hugs, words, service, quality time, gifts and concern.
Note: Priority Status often goes un-noticed because it is often not given in expected ways or maybe in the way one wants it. It can be in a business meeting or late hours because priority status is sometimes taking care of business. It can be in unspoken prayers. It can be in the clogged sink fixed; though you really want words it came in service. It can come with a hug when you really wanted flowers. Priority Status is delivered in all kinds of love languages.
