Daily Bible Verse - 1/5/2008 - 1 John 3:18

NIV Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
KJV My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
NASB Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
1 John 3:18

We should not love in word or in tongue, but rather in deed and in truth. In other words, it should not be a matter of affectionate terms only, neither should it be an expression of what is not true. But it should be manifested in actual deeds of kindness and should be genuine instead of false.

Did you know?
For John, love is not a feeling or attitude toward others. God is love (1 John 4:8, 16), and He acts in love on our behalf (1 John 4:9-10). Love, therefore, is something one does, by keeping God's commandments (1 John 2:2-5; 5:3), "in deed and in truth" (1 John 3:18), and, above all, by loving others (1 John 2:9-11; 3:10).

Daily Bible Verse - 1/4/2008 - Psalm 90:4

NIV For a thousand years in your sight
are like a day that has just gone by,
or like a watch in the night.
KJV For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
NASB For a thousand years in Your sight
Are like yesterday when it passes by,
Or as a watch in the night.
Psalm 90:4

Even if people lived a thousand years, they would pass away like a watch in the night. A thousand years may seem long at the time, but not in comparison to God's eternal existence.
