God is Love

 

Rembrandt_Harmensz._van_Rijn_-_The_Return_of_the_Prodigal_Son_-_detail_son

1 John 4:8 tells us 

“God is love.” 

Therefore, 

if we do not act out of love

we do not act for God.

Period. 

Note: This should never be perceived as passiveness or sentiment. Real love is a fierce and interfering force that refuses to see others hurt, even by themselves.

May your days be full of God.

Cosmic presence
