Fr. 2/1/13: 1 John 3:18 – 21 Why should we love?
My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.Why should we love? If we don’t, our soft hearts will condemn us.
