If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him
compassion, how can the love of God remain in him? Children, let us love not
in word or speech but in deed and truth.  1 John 3:11-21

Jesus decided to go to Galilee, and he found Philip.
And Jesus said to him, "Follow me."  ~John 1:43-51

Jesus calls us to follow Him.  We follow Him whenever we love those around
us.  We are called to love others not just with words or speech, but in deed
and truth.

I pray that I may heed Jesus' call to follow Him.  I pray that I may show my
love of God by loving those around me with deeds and truth.
