— 1 John 3:18 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"Talk is cheap!"

"You can tell me with your words, but I want to see it in your 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 with our words and actions.

My Prayer...

Sacrificial Father, I confess to you that at times I am selfish. Other times my intentions are good but my follow through and faithfulness are lacking. Use your Spirit to empower and enable me to be what I hope to become to your glory. May your love be seen in my actions of genuine concern today. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen.
