10 Ways That The Bible Tells Us How To Love

Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with ACTIONS and in truth.
I John 3:18

Indeed truth was spoken in the verse of 1 John 3:18, because love can best be shown and seen through actions and devotions, not just through emotions. Someone can feel “love” for someone, but then turn around and do things that wouldn’t be considered love. Emotion cannot be the only criteria for love! It is by true devotion that will reveal a pure type of love.
