How Do You Spell Love?

| 1:06 MIN READ |

Spelling is tough for some folks. One of the greatest inventions of technology is spellcheck. It’s saved me embarrassment and errors numerous times!

Sometimes the concept of spelling a word goes beyond the appropriate letters and placement of them. Spelling can refer to how we define the word.

A good example of this is the word “love.” We spell it “L-O-V-E.” But how do we really spell it? How is love communicated to others?

There’s no better way to spell love than “T-I-M-E.” When we give someone time, we’re giving them the greatest gift of all. Why? Because your time is a portion of your life. Who and what you give your time to, you’re giving your life to. It’s a big deal!

When the apostle Paul writes his first letter to Christians at Thessalonica, he reminded them of how much he loved them with these words found in 1 Thessalonians 2:8 (NLT) “We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God’s Good News but our own lives, too.”

When you lean into your relationships by giving others the gift of your time, you’re truly giving the gift of yourself. Give someone this gift today!
