Love and actions

May 9th, 2016

“Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God.” 1 John‬ ‭3:18-19‬ ‭NLT

‬‬The older I get and the longer I have been following Christ, the more I realised loving others is a key to the Christian walk.

In the verses above we see that loving others requires actions too. I have found it is so easy to say I love others and not really do anything about it in a practical sense.

Recently I have been serving in a food parcel outreach in our town. People who are in need can come in to our local Christian Bookstore and they can grab a bag of food to help them through.

Giving out food parcels to those in need is a real practical way to show our love and that we care for those in our town who are doing it tough at the moment.

It has been a long time since I have been involved in something like this. Not only is it a help to those who need food, but it has helped me to put actions to my love. 

How about you? What sort of things do you do that shows your love in action?

God Bless, 

Dave
