Love is Practical

“The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller. The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped.” Proverbs 11:24-25 MSG

Real love is practical. It almost always wears work overalls. Do you want to be loved? Then love those around you. Here’s what that looks like…

Babysit for a single parent or give a date night to coupled parents so they can have a break. If you can do it for free, even better.

Do you feel like no one ever listens to you? Than give a listening ear to someone else.

Are you struggling to believe a promise from the Lord? Then pray for someone else to be strengthened and encourage them.

Do you have a need that is beyond what you can do? Then find someone else who has a need you can meet and bless them! Maybe give away nice clothes that don’t fit you, help clean or do yard work, pay an electric bill or drive someone to the store or pick them up for church.

Are you fighting depression or feeling miserable? Then find someone to compliment or encourage. Send a card or bring balloons or flowers. Call and tell someone you’re thinking about them.

Think about this…you can’t give a hug without getting one back.
