LOVE- does not exist in the abstract
- is a verb, not just a noun
- along with mercy and grace, are free and we should be generous with them! (thanks, Myrtle Groggins)
- "Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions." I John 3:18
We cannot say that we love someone and then not show it in actions. Love professed and then not acted on is hypocrisy. "But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." Romans 5:8.
God has showered His love on us and we are grateful.
