Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action. (1 John 3:18 NRSV)

What does a heart symbolizes? It symbolizes love. I want you to know that you are loved. God loves you. People in your church love you.

I heard about a tribe in a foreign land in which a woman says to her husband on their wedding day, "I love you with all my liver." That doesn't sound very appealing to me. Does it to you? I like heart better.

Of course it's easy to SAY I love you. It is much more difficult to put love into action. What are are some ways you can show people we love them?

How did God show us that he loves us? God sent Jesus into the world. You see, it wasn't enough for God simply to say "I love you." God showed us love. That is what God also expects out of us. Rather than simply saying, "I love you with all my liver--I mean, my heart" we are to do good to others--everybody we meet--and put our love into action.

God of love, may I honor you today by putting my love into action. In Jesus' name, Amen.
