1 John 3:18 NLT, “Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.”

When it comes to investing in the lives of others, showing love tops the charts. It is our acts of love that will help lead others to Jesus Christ. Showing love will not always be a warm and fuzzy experience. There will be times, many times when showing love may even seem inconvenient. It will require us to put the interest of others before our own. We will have to show mercy and compassion to those we may feel do not deserve it. But it helps to remind ourselves, we did not deserve it either, but Jesus still chose to die for us. He has still chosen to extend us His love, mercy, grace, and compassion daily.

God uses us all in different ways, and some of us may be called to help in certain areas, while some of us may not be. So we should ask God for discernment and wisdom regarding people and situations so we can know where and when our help is needed. Quality is better than quantity.

No matter how God uses us to invest in the lives of others, one thing is certain, love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:8). So, may all we say and do, be said and done in love, through the Spirit of God who lives in us.

Our God is Good! May His goodness surround you today!
