let us show the truth by our actions."
1 John 3:18
God gives us two basic commands: Love Him, and love others. We can say that we love God and that we love others, but when our actions do not line up with what we say, we are liars.
Recently God has been pointing out in my life how I fall short in His commands, especially in loving others. I say that I love others, but that love cannot be seen until I sacrifice my pride, my selfishness, my desires...everything about MYself. And many times, I hold onto MYself, and essentially I don't let Christ's love flow through me. All the love He has poured into me is stuck behind a dam of selfishness.
