Love Requires Action

Verse of the Day: 1 John 3:18   

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.                                           

When it comes to marriage let’s not just talk about love, let’s show our love with actions. Throughout the Bible God shows us that love is an action not just a word. Two of the greatest acts of love in the Bible are when God gave His only Son and Jesus laid down His own life for us. We can never out love God but we can do our best to show the love God shows us to our husband or wife. God is our example by being caring, compassionate, forgiving, merciful, patient, faithful and so much more. Let’s not love with words but with action.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the greatest act of love. You gave Your one and only Son who then gave His life for us. We know we can never out love You, Lord, but with Your help we pray that we can be loving, caring, compassionate, forgiving, merciful, patient and faithful in our own marriage. Help us Lord, to not only love with words but with action and in truth. Help us to do everything in love. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
