Good morning, this is Topher, from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive Message Minute.

Kids know things about Love that we forget as adults.  We tend to think of Love as an emotion, but kids know that it is an action, a decision.  One kid said, "Love is when mommy makes coffee for daddy and takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is ok."  Another said, "When my Grandma got arthritis and couldn't bend over, my grandpa started painting her toenails for her, even when his hands got arthritis too.  That's love."

Kids know that love is an action and a decision.  That is exactly what the Bible says about it too.  That famous 1 Corinthians 13 passage says, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” (excerpt from 1 Cor 13:4-8)

You didn't hear much talk of love as an emotion or a feeling in that reading did you?  Maybe kids know that love isn’t something you just feel, it’s something you do

Decide to Love someone today by loving action, with loving behavior, by lovingly DOing something that they deserve as God’s beautiful creationDON'T JUST FEEL LOVE, DO LOVE.  You'll be glad you did.
