I dropped out of a Christian, non-profit choir several years ago in order to pursue debate. The lyrics of some of the songs that we sang still pop into my mind from time to time. Last night was one of those times. I remembered a line from a song called 'The Love of God'.
"The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen could ever tell. It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell."
As I reflected on these lines, it occurred to me that the love of God is greater than what writing or speech can convey because it requires action. It goes beyond just telling the high end business leader and the homeless person on the street that God loves them. God's love is manifested in action.
Are we telling about God's love, or are we showing God's love?
