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

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"Talk is cheap." "Actions speak louder than words." Let's show our love for our family, our friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ by the way we live and what we do for each other.

My Prayer...

Loving and generous God, my Abba Father, please forgive me for letting my love for your children remain just a matter of words. Please give me the opportunity today to bless one of these brothers or sisters in Christ with a kind deed, a gentle action, or way to serve. I want to demonstrate my love just as my Savior did. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
