Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
1 John 3:18 (NIV)
People tend to love love. We love falling in love, we love the feelings, we love the idea of love. Love in action and in truth? Well, that’s more difficult, right? I’ve heard the example: if your mouth were duct-taped shut and you couldn’t speak, not a single word (no writing either, that’s cheating), if the only way you could love was with your actions-would your neighbors know you love Jesus? How about your parents or spouse or kids, would they know you love them? Coworkers, teammates, classmates?
We are to be people who are short on rhetoric and long on substance. Make sure your actions are speaking way louder than your words this week.
