Time to show more in deeds than in words

Love knows no language, no culture, but understands everything. How confident are we today to say to Jesus, “I love you more than any other thing?” What does it mean for me to love Jesus today?

Time to show more in deeds than in words

Whoever does not love, does not know God, for God is Love. 1 Jn 4:8

Love knows no language, no culture, but understands everything. How confident are we today to say to Jesus, “I love you more than any other thing?” What does it mean for me to love Jesus today?

My response to Jesus’ love is to be faithful to Him and to myself. I must love what God has created. As St. John tells us in 1 Jn 4:8, whoever does not love, does not know God, for God is Love.

We are made to love and to be loved. The one, who loves, receives. Loving is more about trusting one’s beloved. Besides, if one does not know how to forgive, one does not know how to love. Jesus calls us to love Him in all things.

As St. Ignatius of Loyola would say in the book of the ‘Spiritual Exercises,’ no [235] “God dwells in His creatures”. God has blessed me with so many talents; that my love for God is in using these gifts for His service.

Whatever I do, I must do with love and care. As St. Ignatius would assert, “love ought to show itself more in deeds rather than in words.” We must practice what we preach. Love is service that Jesus calls us for. Jesus’ whole life could be summarized in one word - LOVE. The invitation for all of us is to love God in all things. --Joseph Kerketta SJ
