“Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God.” 1 John‬ ‭3:18-19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Just saying the words, ‘I love you’ takes no real effort at all, but showing it takes time, energy, thought, intent, and a willingness to lay aside my interests for the interests of another. Lord, help me to be known as someone who loves well, someone who doesn’t give up, someone who belongs to You and looks very much like You, Amen 🙏🏼
