Action Speaks Love Louder Than Words
James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
Have you ever heard the saying, “Words are cheap but action speaks louder than words”? This saying is so true! It is so easy to say I love you but what really shows love, especially the love of God is what we do for others. Nothing is truer than with our families, our spouse, our children, grandchildren, and others we are around every day of our lives. It is so easy to fall into a habit of not seeing the needs of those around us, taking others for granted while they suffer in silence. The bible teaches us that a man who does not care for his own is worst than an infidel. (I Timothy 5:8: But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.) If you know a need someone has, a struggle they are facing everyday of their lives and you do nothing to help with that need or struggle the bible says you are sinning and you are worse that an unbeliever, a heathen. It is so easy for us to say we love and we care for people or to say we will pray for someone’s need. Prayer is wonderful and we should always pray for others but if we have the means to supply the need of someone it is our Christian responsibly to take care of that need. God is a Lord of doers not just talkers. Talk is cheap and sounds good to the ear especially our ear but what really makes a difference is doing what is needed to help others. You can tell someone you love them all day long and never lift a hand to help that person they won’t care about your words but if you reach out and help with their needs they will always remember that and most will return that love two fold. More than that God will be pleased with you and will bless you for your kindness to others.
Philippians 2:4 say, Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. We are not to just look out for ourselves but to look to the needs of others.
Our words are cheap but our help to others brings results for God.
