May 23 Devotion: True Love Shows

True Love Shows

Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Spouses, kids, pets, etc. There are many things in our lives that we will use the word love when we talk about. Love can be shown in many different ways. Hopefully you tell your spouse or kids each day that you love them. If it’s a place that we love to eat we might eat there once a week. How do we show God that we love Him?

Actions Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is ; but exhorting one another : and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. I brought it up in jail this past Sunday morning. I will never understand those that say they love God yet will skip out on multiple services each week. When God has done something in your heart I believe the least I can do is attend the house of God to worship him. It is easy to just say some words, but as the old saying goes: Actions speak louder than words.

Do you love Him today? Does it show?

God bless you today! Bro. Josh Richardson
