I definitely recommend that anyone who wants to have a better relationship with our Creator, to read this book. Some of my favorite lines from the book are:
“The tragedy is that people who choose not to love are never happy people. Their lack of love not only hurts the other person but also atrophies their own souls. People who refuse to love live on the edge of desperation.” – p.13.
“I believe that human love relationships reflect the nature of God, who is love. If we can understand the dynamics of human love, it will help us better comprehend the expressions of divine love.” – p. 17
“When a husband and wife discover each other’s primary love language and choose to speak it on a regular basis, emotional love will be reborn.” – p.21
“Parents also must learn the primary love languages of their individual children if the children are to feel loved.” – p23
Another thing, I absolutely loved is this:
“As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” – Luke 10:38-42
One line in the book, that stopped me and forced me to read it again a few times was this “Jesus KNEW the heart of both sisters.” What better example of two different people having two different personalities? These sisters were completely different with their personalities. Martha was definitely an acts of service girl and Mary on the other hand was a quality time person.
I loved this book. You definitely need to read it!
