Share the Love Challenge

Share the Love Challenge

We invite you to join us in our 2016 Share the Love Challenge. This year at DaySpring, we are challenging ourselves and each other to focus our daily thoughts on God’s love. Join us as we commit to share the love by studying these three categories:

Love God (& accept His love for us)
Love others (family, friends, strangers, enemies, everyone!)
Love ourselves

Will you accept this challenge? Great! Read through a few ideas below to get started. Note that most of these items can be completed in three minutes or less.  Let’s give it a shot and see what happens!


For God:

Open the word and read some of the scriptures on love. (Need a quick list? Google "Scriptures on love".) Bonus points for doing this one each day this week.

Write down 2 or 3 sentences about what you read about love in Scriptures.

Turn off the stereo on your commute, and spend three minutes talking to God out loud, expressing praise, gratitude and love for him.

For Others:

Share an encouraging scripture with someone you care about.  Send a text, an email, a card or letter, speak it out loud, or use a handy-dandy DaySpring eCard.

Leave your special someone a quick note to remind them how meaningful they are in your life. Leave it on the mirror, in the car, in their lunchbox, or anywhere unexpected.

Send a card or note to a friend and let them know you’re thinking of them.  It can be as simple as that: “Thinking of you! Love, Me”

For Self:

Give yourself the gift of some quiet time - no electronics, people, reading material or busy work, and no apologies. Deep breaths and quiet. Start with 3 minutes and see how you feel.

Stand up and take a 3-minute walk.

Look in the mirror and say out loud to yourself, “You are loved.”
