how do we show love?

I’m going through 1 John right now.  It’s really kicking my…oh, we don’t let our kids say the “b” word.  Let’s say “tail.”  Today’s challenge:

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

You know the saying, “Words are cheap.”  They are.  Without action they are meaningless.  It’s easy to talk a good game.  It’s even easy to get a “word” from God, be challenged about something, declare our change, then move on like nothing ever happened.  Words are cheap.  Actions are real.  Let’s stop talking about loving the world, our neighbor, and the lost.  Let’s really love them.

Instead of me telling you what I think that means, tell me what you think that means? Let me hear from you.
