If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:17-18
Look around you. Got any stuff?
Look out at the world? See any need?
What do you feel when you pass a homeless guy on the street? Annoyance? Fear? Anger? Nothing?
Or do you feel pity? Compassion? Maybe even love?
God is imploring us to actually DO something about the needs all around us. Take ACTION. In LOVE.
What does love in action look like?
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. 1 John 3:16
Want to show someone real love? Lay down your life for them.
