Growing up the ‘I love you’s’ were just not heard in our house. Years later when asked about it, my mother said: “How can you say you didn’t know you were loved?” And I thought: you can’t know for sure if the words are never spoken.
So, what’s the point today?
Love should not be silent.
In The Word of God, He tells us over and over of His love. In fact, more than 300 times and 11 of those times are in the New Testament* where He tells us to love one another just as He loves us.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13.34
If we are commanded to do so, how can we be silent?
“By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13.35
If others are to know we are disciples, how can we be silent?
“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15.12
Again, a command and again; how can we be silent?
“These things I command you, that you love one another.” John 15:17
The point is if anything is repeated in the Bible, we should take heed and follow its instruction.
If we are commanded to love than that love should not be silent!
How can we…
if it is?
Something to think about for sure!
Don’t let your love be silent or those in your life may wonder if you really do love them.
Just love and let that love never be silent. People will know us by our love.
It is far from the day of love, but I say take today the 14th of this month and every 14th and treat them like the traditional Valentine’s Day of sorts by you telling someone of your love for them. Make that call or send that text and if you do, tell us about it.
Do not let your love be silent!
Another thing love does is forgive. Look back at this post: https://bethechurch.home.blog/2019/09/15/dont-forget/
