Love in deed and truth

I posted this on facebook, and thought I would share it here also:

Today, most people won’t believe you when you tell them that you love them. However, they will believe you when you show them, and show them, and show them, and show them…

I thought I would share a few passages from 1 John that suggests this kind of love:

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. (1 John 3:18 ESV)

If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. (1 John 4:20 ESV)

Let us love in deed and in truth… and keep on loving in deed and in truth… to demonstrate that we love our brothers and sisters and to demonstrate that we love God.
