Love in Action

Love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. (John 13:34-35) 

Love is not just a feeling. It is an action. 
Jesus tells us that others will know us by our love.. 
He also tells us that we ought to love one another. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 reads, “Love is patient, love is kind. 
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
True love in action puts the needs of others before our own.
It doesn’t retaliate when someone hurts us.
It is kind, giving to those who don’t always deserve it or may not have earned it… by your definition.
True love is selfless, not self-serving.
If you are home with your family, love them.  If you have grandparents or older neighbors home by themselves, call them. There is no time like the present to put Jesus’s commands in action!  Love in action! 
What a beautiful devotion. Love without action is merely a word. We must all be reminded of this from time to time and especially now. Take a moment and show someone you love them today. 

Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
