STOP AND THINK – Love is very much a matter of actions rather than emotions. (Jerry Bridges, Christian author)

In a world flooded with songs, movies, and stories of love, it’s really hard to understand what genuine love is. Many times it is identified with lust or eroticism. Other times it is regarded merely as an emotion—something that fosters the idea of “listening to your heart, not your mind.” But real love is thoughtful, unselfish, and results in actions that benefit the one loved.

We should love one another . . . let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3:11, 18)
