Love in Deed

by Joel Osteen

Today's Scripture

" ÖLet us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truthÖ" (1 John 3:18, AMP).

Today's Word

As a believer, we are the hands and feet of Jesus in this earth. God wants to bless people, and He wants to use you and me to do it! He wants to work through us to show His love and compassion and draw people to Himself.

Notice this verse tells us that love isnít just about our words or thoughts; itís about our actions. Itís about reaching out and meeting the needs of others. Sometimes, meeting a personís need is as simple as sharing a smile, a hug or a word of encouragement. Sometimes itís through material means. Can you pay for someoneís gas or groceries? Can you help them find a solution to a difficult situation? The Bible says that itís His kindness that leads people to turn toward Him, and there are many ways to show the love of God.

Today, step out and show others what real love is. Every act of kindness is a seed that will produce a harvest in your own life in return. Let your love be in word and in deed and watch how God pours out His blessing in every area of your life!

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your hand of blessing in my life. Thank You for choosing to work through me today. I submit myself and my resources to You. Show me ways to be a blessing to others so that the earth will be filled with the knowledge of Your glory. In Jesusí Name, Amen.
