(pro)verbs.

remember yesterday’s post? this is about that.

love requires positive action.

it is impossible to love without showing love.

when compassionate action is not present, love is absent.

love is more than a feeling. as dc talk would say, ‘love is a verb.’

(mark the date down on your calendar. i’ll never again reference dc talk in this conversation.)

sometimes, the ‘action’ required is speaking up for those you love.

speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.
–proverbs 31:8,9

and that’s what i intend to do.

    I agree. The fact that American nuns are being punished for their “liberalness” even though they do a majority of the church’s work with the poor makes me wonder that “proverbial” WWJD. Pretty sure he would always stand up for the oppressed and poor and would reward those who do as well.

    This also reminds me that Christianity has more to do with community and taking care of each other than engaging in a never-ending culture “war”. “War” is not an act of love. “War” is not an act of community-building. “War” is not an act Jesus would want. At least, I would hope not.
