Lets us not love in word or neither in tongue...

I John 3:18
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

Often times we find saying "I love you" is so easy to say. We say it in passing, we email it in forwards,"if you love 10 people pass this on". It is so easy to love in our words or with our tongue. The challenge comes in when we love in deed and in truth. In Deed- means action, means we are to do something. Now there is the challenge I can love you with my tongue but don't ask me to disrupt my life, or disrupt my schedule to do something for you because my love does not run in that direction. I just do not have time to help you. I just do not have time to love you in that way. I have a family to tend to, or even I have a job that does not allow me to love you in deed.

If you are unable to love in deed, can you love in truth because the two go hand in hand? "but in deed AND truth."
When you love in deed, then you show your truly love them. (truth) Does it not become a sacrificial love? Where you sacrifice yourself, and your own agenda,to minister to the need?

This weekend we(Maria and I) are heading to San Antonio for a Beth Moore conference, but more so to meet all these women from all over the United States, whom we have loved through the blogging world on Beth Moore's site, who have loved in word, and are about to love in deed.

May Our Lord be with each of you as you travel to this great state of Texas. May our Lord be glorified this weekend as we gather. May we each love in deed and in truth. May we show my daughter what it means to love the "brethern" or this case the Siestas!!!
In Jesus Name Amen!
