To tell someone you love them is not sufficient for them to believe that you do. One must believe in order for a fact to be a truth to them, your actions will prove out whether or not you truly do love them.
Many the time you will hear someone say, “I love you” then act as though they have no clue to what love is. When you love someone, the consideration of that someone, must be as important as the consideration you give to yourself.
When you want someone to believe that you love them, you must first love them! They will know that they are loved.
If you really want to know if you love someone, ask that someone, “Do I love you?” After all, isn’t it the truth that we want to know if they believe we love them?
No one can say how an act will be received by another, we can merely act from the heart where love is concerned, then, the act in itself will be enough to show love.
When we tell someone we love them, we must make certain that we are not replacing the act with the words! Often you will hear the words spoken only to see the contrary lived out in the life of the speaker.
Understanding what it means to love, will help us to understand why we use the words in place of the action.
With the variance of meaning being so great, it is not really any wonder we confuse the word.
We use the word love, far too loosely to expect someone to believe how deeply we feel the union in a marriage relationship, for instance.
We might use the same words to refer to a piece of cake! Is it any wonder we need to show love more than just handing out the words?
We will find our relationships of love growing in massive quantities, when we begin to consider just how we show our love to those we care so much about.
You will be the example of how to show what your heart is filled with, when you begin to, “show” love as opposed to, “say” love!
