How to Succeed: Words or Action?
1 John 3:18, “My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth.” Sometimes actions speak louder than words. Jesus expects us to treat each other with love and kindness. When you care for someone else, you are showing Jesus that you love Him. Matthew 25:35, “I was hungry….you gave me something to eat….I was stranger….you invited me in.”
We must care about people’s spiritual needs, as well as, their practical needs. No one can understand God’s love for them, if they are homeless or hungry. We must learn to show others how much God loves them based on our actions. We should provide individuals with their practical needs like food, shelter, and clothing because that is what Jesus expects us to do. Providing someone with a hot meal or warm place to sleep speaks volumes as to how much God loves them. Actions speak louder than words when telling others about God.
