What Does Love Look Like?

“What does love look like?

“It has the hands to help others.

“It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.

“It has eyes to see misery and want.

“It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.

“That is what love looks like.”

~St. Augustine

Love is a verb...

Love gives...the best of time, energy, and possessions
Love walks...alongside, to uphold another
Love encourage the discouraged
Love offers a hand...up

Love offers a shoulder...for another to cry on
Love believes...the best of another
Love matter what
Love’s spouse

Love supports...when another’s strength is lacking
Love cheers...when laughter is needed
Love praises...rather than tears down
Love comforts...a hurting soul

Love carries...when another’s steps falter
Love a lasting relationship
Love remains silent...when necessary
Love communicates...with kindness

Love cares...enough to do something
Love shows...grace and mercy

Love in action...“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16 NKJV)

“You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.”
~~Amy Carmichael

“For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.” (1 John 3:11 NKJV)

    Great post. I like the way you break down how love is shown in many different circumstances

  8. Great post Lynn - how inspiring! This is one of my favorite extra-Biblical quotes on love: "And love in the heart wasn't put there to say; Love isn't love 'till you give it away." -Oscar Hammerstein II

    Love is indeed an "action word" - showing forth the Father's attributes to a hurting world...
