5 Languages of Love

When we speak about love, we generally think about love between men and women, boys and girls, dating and marriage; and when i think about that, the 5 languages of love just come to my mind. This is a really great book from Gary Chapman, and more that a book, a revelation which has transformed and restored many marriages and relationships around the world.

I just thought i could share a little about the 5 Languages of Love with you:

(taken from 5lovelanguages.com)

1- Words of Affirmation: Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important—hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.
2- Quality Time: In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.
3- Receiving Gifts: Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous—so would the absence of everyday gestures.
4- Acts of Service: Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes. The words he or she most want to hear: “Let me do that for you.” Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter.
5- Physical Touch: This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.

what the Bible says:

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13.34-35

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” John 15.13

“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.”  1Peter 4.8

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” 1John 3.16

Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” 1John 3.18

“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” 1John 4.8

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” 1John 4.18

Update 1

Hello, this is Thiago (owner of this blog) and this post is an update from me, just to explain why i took so long to write here.

We are in February 2010, it’s been a long time since i posted the last article. Sorry about that. I was on a 18 days Camp (from 07 to 23 of January) and it was an amazing experience. The fisrt week we had the Kids Camp, with about 120 kids jumping and running around, and the second week we had the Youth Camp, with 200 young people having fun and worshiping God with all their hearts. Now i’m back home and praying that God is gonna complete what He has started on that camp in the lives of those young people.

Well, i think that is it. So,be aware that soon we will have more posts.

God bless you and never forget. LOVE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
