There is power in the word love, like no other. But there are different kinds of love, and love means different things to different people. Lovers love each other, parents love their children, bloggers love each other’s work. One thing is for certain though, love is more powerful when it is backed up with action.
If lovers do not spend time together, their love can fade. If parents say they love their children, but don’t show it, don’t take care of them, they are lacking love. And if we say we love someone’s work, but don’t tell them, then the words are empty.
There is an ancient saying that shows this love-action connection. “Love your neighbor as yourself.” So simple, so powerful, and yet so difficult to do at times. Other people are just as important as we are, and when we love them, and show them we love them, we truly can make a difference in our world. Another way of saying this is – love can be a verb. Love needs to be put into action. So when you have a chance, show someone you really do care.
I wish you peace.
