How do we communicate love to our spouse in ways that are recognized and appreciated?
I m convinced there are only five languages of love. Each person uses all the languages, but really thrives on one, says Gary Chapman in his article for MARRIAGE PARTNERSHIP magazine. These love languages are channels to communicate our love to our spouse. They require sacrificial effort, contemplative forethought, and purposeful demonstration. However, the results of successfully communicating our love are tender intimacy and a stronger marriage bond.
What does the Bible say about each of the love languages Chapman proposes? How did Jesus use these love languages to communicate his love to his followers? What heart issues affect how we communicate with our spouse?
