May I Be Of Service?? Acts of Service
Written by Dr. Sean Medlin and Dr. Krystal Czegus / Updated on May 22, 2017 / 0 comments
We are back this week for people who have “acts of service” as their primary love language. Helpful acts are seen as very powerful expressions of love and devotion. Actions like cooking a meal, setting a table, washing dishes, vacuuming, taking out the garbage, mowing the grass, etc. are all acts of service. If done with a positive spirit and without expecting something in return, they are indeed expressions of love.
Within every language, there are many dialects. If you have a significant other with acts of service as his/her primary love language, find out the specific things he/she would like by asking. If you are the person with that specific love language, let your spouse know which actions mean the most to you
Some valued ideas for acts of service include:
During the cold months, put a towel in the dryer while your spouse is showering so it’s all fluffy and warm when he/she gets out.
Clean the kitchen or bathroom
Pack a lunch for your significant other to enjoy on their lunch break
Cook a special meal that you know he/she likes.
Fill up your gas tank without being asked.
Drop your spouse at the door when it is raining.
Men: Open car doors for your wife.
Pick up the check while out to dinner or at your favorite coffee shop.
Load or unload the dishwasher without being asked.
Offer an attentive ear when someone needs to just talk something out or prepare for an important meeting or presentation
Go to the grocery store and buy items you know he/she loves—without being asked.
Showing your love for another doesn’t have to consist of extravagant displays of affection, expensive gifts, or candlelit dinners every night. Sometimes it’s the little things that can make a huge difference and count most. Simple things that show someone you took the time to think of them make the world a better place!
