“A lot of trouble will disappear if people learned to talk to each other instead of talking about each other“.
“Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth” (1 John 3:18).
If a brother or sister is in need, and all we give them are words of love, with no action, what have we really said to them? James put it like this:
14 What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “ Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? (James 2:14-16)
Just as faith is demonstrated by works, so too is love. This is true of God’s love for us.
Let’s take some time to do some internal spring cleaning; find ways to heal/grow; and put some authenticity into our lives by working on full disclosure. Life’s too short to live in unhappy and unfulfilled.
Have a great weekend everyone.
That is all!
