Let It Be Done In Love

“Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.” Ephesians 5:2 NLT

A few weeks ago on my YouTube channel, I talked about how to be a better person and one of the things I said to do is to do things with love. In the video, I didn’t go into a lot of practical ways to live in love so that’s what this blog post is about.

  1. Love yourself. This is first and foremost! I mean, honestly think about it – how can you live in love and let love follow freely from your heart if you don’t even love yourself first. Your heart should be filled to the brim with love and once you start to love yourself more it will overflow and pour out into everything you do and touch.
  2. Be Considerate. For me, this is done by considering other people’s feelings and what they might be going through in their lives. For example, if someone is being a poor friend to me, instead of lashing out, getting upset, or even cussing them out – I always first try to give the person the benefit of the doubt. Maybe my friend is under a lot of stress and pressure these days, or maybe this person doesn’t know they are being unkind.
  3. Perform Acts of Kindness. This one is pretty self-explanatory. You don’t have to go all out or even spend money (such as paying for the car behind you foods/Starbucks behind you). You could just hold the door for someone and say “I hope you have a blessed rest of your day,” or if you see someone frowning tell them hello! You never know what people are going through, and your smile or hello, or “have a great day,” might help them get through those tough situations in their life.
  4. Love encourages more love. The more you outwardly live your life with love, I firmly believe that the more love will return to your life. I honestly feel like the more I’ve been intentional about being kind and living in love – the happier I have been. I no longer allow people to upset me, and just love them in spite of themselves.

I hope this encourages you to live in love! What are some ways you will begin to live your life in love? Share below in the comments!

XOXO,

    Great post! This was definitely an eye-opening reminder of how God has called us to live. I can especially relate to numbers two and three. Being considerate and sensitive of what others may be going through that I have no idea of and also the part I play in others lives by just being kind. Thankful I read this post. Now it’s definitely on my mind to live it out as best as I can today! 🙂

    I love this! When I started blogging my aim was self-discovery and I ‘discovered’ a lot of things that I didn’t like about myself. I quickly learnt that self love was an integral part of self-discovery otherwise I wouldn’t get very far on my journey! Some great tips here!💙

    Great tips! I’m become more compassionate and more understanding of others over time as I’ve come to love and understand myself. Less anger, frustration, etc. Living in love and being kind doesn’t cost us a thing. I wish more people would understand that.

      I agree! I wish more people would live in love, it would make the world such a better place to be apart of. Hopefully the more people who do live in love and be kind, will create sort of a domino effect with others!
