Act as if you love them

February 3, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

C.S. Lewis said, “Don’t waste time bothering whether you “love” your neighbor; act as if you did. ” (italics original in Christian Behaviour)  Why?  Because says Lewis, “When we behave as if we love someone, we will come to love him.”

Ok then, here are some ways I could do this

  • listen to their stories
  • join them in their world when possible
  • express interest in their family
  • support them when possible
  • show them all the five languages of love
  • show them respect and honor
  • do what they want
  • speak the truth to them
  • walk with them
  • don’t judge or criticize or slander them
  • think the best of them
