I was reading in 1 John today when I came across this 3:18 “Dear children let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” I had to stop and think about Our Father’s love for us as actions. I thought about Our Father giving us patients, comfort, discipline, encouragement, protection, lessons, forgiveness, mercy, and etc.… they are all action words.
The most important action Our Father done for us is 1 John 4:9 “….. He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” Then, I when back and read 1 John 3:16 “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.” Sent and lay down action words.
I ask myself did I demonstrate love to people with my actions to/for them today? What about you?
Take what you need and leave the rest. Peace and love
