Show Them You Care

Just saying that you love someone isn't enough.  Love must be shown. It's an action word.  I love this quote: "Love is a verb. Without action it is merely a word." Love is living when it's in action. Without action, it's dead.

The easiest - but perhaps hardest - way to show someone you love them is by spending time with them.  Taking time out of your busy schedule to be with someone shows that you care.  Taking the time to visit, call, text, email, write....any of those things show that you cared enough to do something.

Love in action.  It's what Jesus did for us in an extreme way. 

Love in action. It's what God did for us from the time He knitted us in the womb and for the rest of our lives.  And for the Christian, for eternity.

Love in action. It is putting our own selfish needs and desires behind, and putting the needs and desires of others in front.

Love in action. It is taking care of those less fortunate...not just with our money, but with our time and talents.

Love in action.  It's showing others that we care.  It's stopping to listen.  It's being there.  It's slowing down to see what is going on around us.

Love in action.  What can you do to show your love to someone today?

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