Love, as a verb

By Vision, August 27, 2021

A family from the local school was in trouble.

There were doctors and medical appointments and anxiety –

including uncertainty about the future of the life of a particular family member.

Now over the years, the church had built relationships with the local schools.

So it was natural that someone from church noticed this family.

And not just noticed.

But responded.

She gathered donations and building supplies and people.

Together the church folks transformed the family’s little backyard into a beautiful oasis of peace.

Now, during this tough situation, the family could spend time together in a comfortable outdoor space.

The family was shocked but grateful that people would do this!

As I John 3:18 says, let us not love with words or speech, but with actions and truth.

Especially in times of crisis, the love of God is best as a verb.
