Love : true love

And to love Him with all your heart, with all your understanding, and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself, is far more important than all the burnt offerings and sacrifices.”( Mark 12:33)
Last time we looked at what love is not, we have seen that love is not blind and it doesn’t mean you incapable of thinking.
Now let’s look at what true love is and we’ll learn this from the Word of God because God showed the greatest display of true love my giving His Son for our sins.

This is how God’s children and the Devil’s children are made evident. The Command to Love Whoever does not do what is right is not of God, especially the one who does not love his brother. For this is the message you have heard from the beginning: We should love one another, unlike Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil, and his brother’s were righteous. Do not be surprised, brothers, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life because we love our brothers. The one who does not love remains in death. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.This is how we have come to know love: He laid down His life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has this world’s goods and sees his brother in need but closes his eyes to his need — how can God’s love reside in him? Little children, we must not love with word or speech, but with truth and action.( 1 John 3:10 – 18)

This scripture says it all, true love makes you take action when your brothers are in need, not just when your family members are in need but anyone you see that is need. Truelove is what gives life meaning. If you don’t love people you are as good as dead. People must be able to testify that you are alive by pointing to something that you contributed to their lives not what you told them.

Your words mean nothing if they are not sponsored by the appropriate action. Give your words value by striving to fulfill every promise you make. Become a person of their word and try your best to help those who are in need because God didn’t bless you so that you’ll become a show-off but for you to display His love to the masses.

If you want people to trust and respect you; honour your words by keeping your promises.
