“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 John 3:18

TODAY’S WORD…

.

My children,

our love is not to be just words

or mere talk,

but something real and active.

.

– 1 John 3:18 (JB)

.

REFLECTION…

.

Love for others – following our Lord’s example –

must go beyond mere talk;

it must show itself in deed

and in truth.

.

There is no comfort in the selfish heart

– it is full of darkness

and un-admitted desperation.

.

It is the generous heart which gives from itself to others,

that is full of light

which overflows on to others

and uplifts those in need of loving compassion.

.

True love is expressed in actions,

actions that are guided by truth.

If we ‘close our heart’

when we see others in need

– then we do not truly love.

.

.

but we cannot love without giving."
