You’ve probably heard about the 5 love languages… the different ways people enjoy showing and receiving love including words of affirmation, acts of service, physical tough, quality time, and receiving gifts. These love languages help you understand how you (and others!) express love, which is beneficial in all types of relationships.

Knowing your love language doesn’t guarantee that you will perfectly love everyone all the time though. No one can. No one except God.

Even though God is the only one who can love perfectly, his love languages are much bigger than these five earthly languages.

God does so much for us including showing us mercy and forgiveness, seeking our hearts even when we don’t seek time with him, and most importantly sending Jesus to die for us How can you boil down all of this down to a simple, earthly love language?! You can’t. God has his own love languages that he expresses every single day – and I must say, he knocked it out of the ballpark with them. "Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." – Lamentations 3:22-23 (NIV)

Knowing your love language is helpful, but knowing God’s is even more beneficial. Be sure to take time to daily bask in God’s own language.
