Day 15: Loving with Action and In Truth

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


I am sure you have heard the saying, “actions speak louder than words”. We say that quite a bit around here to our boys. My husband is a lot that way…and me, not so much! I am by nature a talker and he is a doer through action. But you know those people in our lives, the ones that make us better; that make us want to love deeper, give more, help where help is needed, serve others, extend grace…and not because they tell us, but because they show us? 

We all need people like this in our lives. They go before us and come alongside us just as Moses went before the Israelite people and eventually led them to the Promised Land. When the people wanted to give up and quit, turn back to Egypt, Moses would encourage them, talk to God on their behalf and then speak His very words back to them. 

We need people in our lives that pour love into us, show us by example, and lead us in truth. The ones who show us a little more of what Jesus was really like. Let’s take some time today and thank the Father for putting these people in our lives. And if possible, reach out to them by sending a note or Christmas card telling them how appreciative we are for them. 

Also, let’s be praying for one another that we will be able to lead the next generation with action and in truth.
