Sometimes I wish my wife, Kathy, had never read Gary Chapman’s “5 Love Languages.” In his book, Gary claims there are five primary love languages.
Kathy’s preferred love language is “acts of service.” She feels most appreciative when I look for ways to serve her. Since “acts of service” is last on my list, it makes for a big challenge. But it’s greatly appreciated when I serve.
1 Peter 5:2 teaches, “Be shepherds of God’s flockthat is under your care, serving as overseers—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money,but eager to serve.”
Being eager to serve means loving your staff or family in the way they prefer. It will be far more appreciated when you do!
