LET OUR LOVE BE
MORE THAN LIP SERVICE
All of us want to hear the words, “I love you” – especially from those who are the most important to us. The same is trueof God. But God is not pleased by words alone. He cannot be tricked by a smooth tongue and flattering speech.
God sees straight to the heart of who we are. He desires us to love him and our fellow human beings with love that is rooted in the truth of our deeds.
Love ought to be more than lip – service, it is a way of life. Don’t just say it, live sacrificially in the little and big things. Dispel hatred; live selflessly to honour our God.
Dear God, I shall no more play games with you;no more pretence or insincerity. Help me to love you with all my heart, soul, and mind. Help me to love others selflessly for the glory of your name. Amen.
Rev Fr Alexander Mwebembezi
