Demonstrate Your Love

“I love you”, how many times have you heard this phrase or even spoken it yourself? Proba- bly too many to count. In todays world all to often this phrase is treated like a punctuation mark at the end of a sentence. We say “I love you” at the end of a phone call or as we are parting the compa- ny of others as a greeting. Sometimes we genuinely mean it but most of the time it probably just rolls of our tongue with out any thought. But how do people know that when we say “I love you” we mean it?

The best way to say “I love you” is to show someone you love them. Love is a powerful moti- vator and we can all recall a time when we went out of our way to do something strange, unusual, or grand just to show someone how much we love them. Maybe it’s a husband surprising his wife a dress that she was eyeing while the family was out shopping. Maybe it’s a mother slipping notes into her children’s lunches to remind them she cares. Maybe it’s the kids doing extra around the house to give their parents a day of rest. Or a young man taking the love of his life on an airplane ride to pro- pose because he’s on cloud nine whenever they’re together. Whatever the case we can all agree that showing someone you love has a far better impact than saying that you love them.

In John 13 Jesus gives us the commandment to “...love one another as [he has] loved [us]...”and the reason why is because that’s how “...all men shall know that ye are my disciples [because] ye have love one to another”. The Bible also tells us in 1 John 4:16 that “God is love”. We are to love each other as much as God loves us and we are to show that love to this world. More than just words love is to be cared for, protected, and demonstrated in all that we do.

This Valentine’s day, and every, let’s do our best to demonstrate the Love of God.
