We need to remember that “love” is primarily an action verb. It is not how we feel, it is what we do that shows our love.
Let me tell you how my wife is showing her love for me. She recently read an article that claimed that people who own dogs not only live longer, they also live happier lives. So she has started to look for a dog for me.
The article also supported that old theory that, over time, dogs and their owners tend to start to look like each other. So my wife is not just looking for any dog for me, she is trying to find one that looks like Brad Pitt!
“Above all, love each other deeply…”—1 Peter 4:8.
