I’ve been doing lots of thinking lately. I guess it isn’t so much the sitting still and contemplating big ideas kind of thinking, but more like living life with my eyes wide open and actually seeing things. I’ve learned that I do more watching and thinking and seeing when life gets busy and I’m involved in these seasons of hands on ministry. There’s very little time for writing and I hardly ever sit still, but life in these moments is so sweet and for me, so full of lessons to learn. When things settle down a bit, I write and reflect. Like now. Bible Study ended and there’s a little more time to put the lessons I’ve learned on the pages.
I’ve been “thinking” lately of some practical ways to love others. I think we need to practice love. Life should really be less about what others can do for us and more about what we can do for others. I think truly loving others is a work of the heart….and it requires a servant’s heart. I’ve found this kind of love to be so fun and a great way to build relationships. Not long ago, I quit stressing about finding time to love others and instead found a way to work loving others into what I already do. I made loving others well a regular habit and although I’m no expert in the field, I do know that my eyes are more open to ways I can show those around me that I love them. When my mindset changed, my lifestyle changed. My life became so much richer when valuing people and loving others became a priority for me. Here are 20 practical and fun little ideas to love others in a BIG way.
Do you have any ideas to add to the list? What are some ways you’ve shown love or others have shown you love?
