Love With Action

Standard


Dear children,

Let us not love with words or speech

But with actions and in truth

1 John 3:18 (NIV,
©2010)

 

Real love goes far beyond pretense or politeness…and surpasses the mere expression of words. Sincere love requires purposeful, focused effort and concentration. It demands our time, money and personal involvement. It means investing in others and helping them become better people. No one is capable of expressing love to an entire community, but you can make a difference ~ one person at a time. Look for people who need your love today, and display it to them as a “verb.” ~

 

Love: / [luhv] verb

  1. Waiting instead of hurrying. 2) Showing up when there is no time. 3) Listening rather than talking. 4) Forgiving instead of holding a grudge. 5) Assuming the best. 6) Choosing kindness rather than anger. 7) Celebrating instead of envying. 8) Anticipating needs. 9) Choosing to be humble. 10) Never giving up – Continuing to the end…
