“Love never gives up”.
1 Corinthians 13:4 MSG
So much can be communicated through a small touch.
A reassuring pat of the hand.
A gentle tug on the elbow of someone who you want closer.
Holding a hand.
A small touch can make a bad thing okay, an okay thing good and make a good thing great.
Small touches are difference makers in a relationship, in a life.
They can be the first thing we unconsciously give and the first thing that we unconsciously withhold.
When we struggle, we when are angry, when we are hurt, we withhold the small touches.
It’s easy to forget how important they are to us and to those we love.
A small touch may make a difference.
What small touch do you need to give?
Who needs it?
What is holding you back from giving it and whatever that is – is it more important than the relationship?
