Showing Love (Colossians 1:4)

These suggestions for showing love to someone are the result of a brainstorm during our bible study.

  • Loving correction when it is needed
  • Writing letters, notes, or emails of encouragement
  • Praying for them
  • Spending time with them
  • Discovering and meeting any needs they may have
  • Fixing a meal for them
  • Baby sitting for them
  • Call them on the phone and talk
  • Open up to them and share yourself with them
  • Take care of your sisters
  • Do yard work or other chores for them
  • Be patient with them
  • Visit them if they are in a nursing or assisted living home
  • Visit them if they are in the hospital
  • Overlook ways they may wrong you
  • Show hospitality to them by inviting them into your home
  • Offer your skills like mechanical, electronic, sewing, plumbing, or cooking to them
  • Invite them to a meal in your home
Please feel free to add more suggestions as comments to this post.
