“My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love. This is the only way we’ll know we’re living truly, living in God’s reality. It’s also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it. For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves.” (1 John 3:18-20 MSG)
We need to encourage people with love. There are many hurting around us. They need to know there is a God who is greater than their struggles, concerns, circumstances, and worries. If we don’t tell them, who will?
