"Talk is cheap!" "You can tell me with your words, but I'll show it with my life." "Put your life where your mouth is." We know the slogans; now let's love in truth. In a world where barter has replaced sacrificial and steadfast love, let's go against the grain and truly love in our words and actions.
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
— 1 John 3:18
Dear Lord, we confess to you that at times we are selfish. Other times our intentions are good but our follow through and faithfulness are lacking. Use your Spirit to empower and enable us to be what we hope to become to your glory. May your love be seen in our actions of genuine concern today. In Jesus name. Amen
