Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
Words can be so tricky sometimes. People can speak so well. People can send you the best text in the world. Talk is cheap. When words aren’t accompanied by gestures, words lose their meanings. So often, we have the tendency to over analyze texts or words, that we ignore the obvious. If everything that they say goes against everything they does, they don’t really mean what they say.
You may never know what the person is experiencing today, but a simple gesture can make a big difference in someone’s day. Simple gestures like hugging a friend, hold a door open for someone, share with someone your breakfast/lunch, smile, and etc.
It creates a happier life for yourself and others. Why? You can see it on their face. You did a good thing. You get what you give. Everything that you do will reflect who you are and sends a message to others.
If throwing words to the people whom you love is all you do, then you don’t love your people that much. Love presents itself in small small actions. The person is for you when they are true for their words, surprises you just to see you smile, and goes all the way out to show you how much they love you.
At the end of the day, all we need is someone whom we can always rely on. Someone whose words carry weight in their meaning, made true by their actions.
