Acts of ServiceLove Language – Acts of Service

This week we’re looking at “acts of service” – doing something for your spouse that you know they would like for you to do.  Cooking a meal, washing dishes, taking out the garbage, mowing the lawn, changing the baby’s diaper, and painting the bedroom, etc.

If this is your spouse’s primary love language, nothing speaks as loudly as these acts of service.  You may give him or her words of affirmation, but they are thinking, “Cut the talk.  If you loved me, you would do something around here.”  For them, actions truly speak louder than words.

Is your love language Acts of Service? What are some creative ways that your spouse has filled your love tank?
