Love – Attitude to Action

True wisdom carries out what it believes. It starts as an attitude, and then is shown in action just as love is. Wisdom introduces Calvary’s love. “It is because of Him that you are in Jesus Christ, who has become for us wisdom from God” (I Corinthians 1:30a, NIV). Because God is full of wisdom and love, His actions revealed it by sending His only Son to die for us. His love was expressed in His actions.

Love never fails, it has no problem accepting a person just the way he is without wanting to change him. Love is daring. Do you dare to love your enemy, a fool, or even someone who does not want you to care?

We can learn a great deal from the love of the Lord in our lives and those around us. God not only told us He loved us, but He put it into action by sending us His Son. How many times do we speak the Word to people, but are not willing to show them in action? Our words seem to be many, but our actions few. We must not limit our expression of love. It should not stop when it comes to people who are not appealing to us. Let us lay down our lives so that we can allow God’s love to be manifested through us.
