Subsequently, Gifts are pretty much like a boomerang affect that co-mingles with Acts of Service because God gives us gifts/talents, and He loves it when we give them back! For instance, our tithing is an expression of returning the gift of money back to the Giver of that money in which is used to help others in the church and in the community (Haggai 2:8 & Proverbs 3:9).
After that, Words of Affirmation. David was a man after God’s own heart and is believed to be the primary writer of the Psalms where he is full of praises and adoration for His God, His Lord, His Savior! When we praise our Heavenly Father, we are drawing near to Him with an enduring expression of love (Psalms 5:7, 26:8, 116:1 & many more!).
Finally, Physical Touch. Even though this may be a tad trickier to illustrate with a Spiritual Entitiy, I imagine two ways to show God this type of love. When we ultimately believe in His Son's physical birth, death, and ressurection, we are indwelled with the Holy Spirit. Thus, our souls, bodies, and minds are connected to Him.
Plus, our physical connection to our Creator comes from honoring the temple He has given us. By exercising to maintain a healthy weight; eating balanced meals, and resting from work while getting enough sleep at night, we are expressing our love and appreciation to Him.
As God lovingly speaks all Five Love Languages to you, make certain to consistently communicate them right back. We are made in His image (Genesis 2:7) and we can love just like HIM.
*Side Note: God’s Speaks Your Love Language: How to Feel and Reflect God’s Love and The Love Language of God: How to Feel and Reflect Divine Love are resources that I have on my bucket list to read. It will be interesting for me to see how connected my thoughts may be to Gary Chapman’s writings especially since I have read 3 different versions of The 5 Love Languages (couples, children, and teens) and The Four Seasons of Marriage.
Feel free to share if you have read any his books.
