love.

1 John 3:18
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

as I was reading 1 John yesterday, this verse seemed to jump out at me. I felt pulled back to it this morning and it made me wonder how well I have been living this out.

truth doesn’t always keep the peace or make the other person feel good, but communicated in a loving way is what they need. actions don’t always fit in my schedule or my desires but it highlights the depths of my heart.

with all that is happening in the world, I see the desperate need for this love that moves and speaks life. imagine the impact it would make if we chose to make this our daily goal.

it’s a choice…not just an emotion.

love well today.
