to know God ... is to know love.
to be like God ... is to be love.
Doesn't that sound more challenging, more fulfilling, more real - to be love -
than to be loving?
I keep hearing, from God & His children, that compassion is not compassion without action, that loving God and loving others (being love) necessitates action. Not just words or feelings. And it isn't supposed to be just big events. A 2-service/year visits to church doesn't make someone a church-goer, and neither does the occasional act of kindness make us "love."
I am challenged.
