Today's Verse: 1 John 3:18

Monday, February 27, 2006

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!"
"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.

Video Commentary...

We've included Phil's ToGather video from four years ago as an added blessing to our verse today:

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.
