1 JOHN 3:17-8 “IF ANYONE HAS MATERIAL POSSESSIONS AND SEES A BROTHER OR SISTER IN NEED BUT HAS NO PITY ON THEM, HOW CAN THE LOVE OF GOD BE IN THAT PERSON? DEAR CHILDREN, LET US NOT LOVE WITH WORDS OR SPEECH BUT WITH ACTIONS AND TRUTH.”
A hallmark of Godly love is COMPASSION. And as scripture explains here, COMPASSION requires ACTION and TRUTH. ACTION to prove one’s concern and TRUTH to genuinely feel one’s sincerity. God’s Spirit on a believer helps him acquire sensitivity to the needs of others.
