Love is a verb!

"Jesus' death and resurrection fulfilled the old law and inaugurated a new law of love that is much simpler."
The Word Among Us

"A new law of love..." I like that! The thing about love is that it isn't for pondering or idealizing. Love is for doing. Love has feet and hands. Brennan Manning talks about that in his piece today; loving others by being a servant. Jesus showed the disciples how to make love an action, not just an ideal. "So he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing and wrapped a towel around his waist..." (John 13:4) We all know what Jesus did next. He got on his knees and washed the disciples' feet. He demonstrated to them that one must love and serve others. He put action to his words. It's so much easier for us to talk about stuff than it is for us to actually DO stuff, isn't it? Today, let's think about love as a verb. Let's love well today! Love, heidi
