1 John 3:18

 

 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

love quote 

I remember lecturing my kids once about what it means to love a pet. It isn’t just snuggles and cuddles, it involves feeding and walking and keeping shots up to date. We’ve all seen those reality shows on TV where animals are living in absolute squalor, and each time the Humane Society comes to rescue them, the owners cry about how much they truly do “love” their neglected pets.

Healthy, vibrant and growing love requires attention and “deeds.”  Love that doesn’t involve action, personal sacrifice, unsolicited kindnesses and putting the needs of someone else first is nothing more than a deeply felt, but unshared, sensation..

kinda like a stomach ache.
