Even applying this to our walk with God. God does not just want us to have a knowledge of Him. He wants us to love Him. God wants a deep intimate relationship based in love, not just an intellectual relationship. It is through our love for God that we are able to love others and build up the world around you.
I was able to put this into practice this morning with my husband. He came in to the bedroom to talk to me this morning and I know that one of his love languages is touch, so I just hugged him for a long time and it started our day off on the right foot. This was so much more meaningful to him than having a conversation.
