How Can I Love You More?

Categories: Jesus' Commandment - To Love as He Loved

This is a fun exercise. Decide to whom you want to ask this question. It could be either or both of your parents, a sibling, grandparents, a close relative, your SS teacher, coach, friend, or God – yes, God! Don't tell the person it is an exercise. If you really want to improve your relationship with someone, then ask, "How can I love you more?" Then listen. Don't react if you hear something you don't want to hear – like, "You could help with the dishes more often, or get up when you're called, or remember to clean up your room." Remember you WANT to work on this relationship. Follow through on what is asked. In another week, ask the question again. I had a friend who regularly asked his wife that question and he was always amazed she had an answer. If you are willing, ask God. Listen with your whole heart. [Notice "ear" is in the middle of "heart."] You will be amazed by His answers.
