“Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth” (1 John 3:18).
The most convincing expression of the faith is to be found not in what we say but what we do. Thus, we are at our best when practicing the verbs of our faith. Verbs are action words like going, offering, blessing, sacrificing, obeying, welcoming, conquering, receiving. If actions speak louder than words, we don’t want to be caught sitting around reflecting upon majesty, glory, adoration and other flowery nouns that never get translated into deed and truth.
