My little children,
let us not love in word,
neither in tongue;
but in deed and in truth.
1 John 3:18 KJV
To love with words alone is like a bowl
So finely made without a bite within.
A love with empty words soon takes its toll;
A promised rain will starve the flower thin.
An act of love speaks volumes by itself;
In service is the truth that can’t be told.
A dictionary sits upon the shelf;
The Living Word does miracles so bold.
To minister to others is sublime,
So do all that you can in truth and deed.
These words upon your screen is just a rhyme;
True poetry is helping those in need.
Enough with words! Your vocal chords can break.
The best love in the world’s the love you make.

James 5:12 (MSG)
And since you know that he cares, let your language show it. Don’t add words like “I swear to God” to your own words. Don’t show your impatience by concocting oaths to hurry up God. Just say yes or no. Just say what is true. That way, your language can’t be used against you.
