Daily Digest #147

Let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. —1 John 3:18

Action really speaks louder than words. Love and help does not end with the words we utter -- we prove them through our actions. We can't say "i'm with you in prayer" when in fact, we are fully capable of doing something about it. I think it's selfish and cowardly. Unfortunately, we don't get the love or help we need from the people we think who share our sentiments all the time. But God has a way of extending a helping hand to us in moments of desperation, and love in times of loneliness and weakness.

For this, let us pray. May God bless the helpful, the compassionate and the faithful, especially those who give their time unselfishly to others. May we learn from them, and pray that we may be molded into these characters someday. May we also ask God to heal those who are in pain, comfort and strengthen the scarred and the weak, and give endless hope to those who are on the verge of giving up. Pray always.
