This book is a compilation of all the descriptions of loving relational behavior found in the New Testament. Along with the author’s summaries and practical parenting examples, it promises to be a valuable tool toward educating your conscience about what is loving, and what is unloving.
Have you ever thought that if you are generally nice, refrain from causing conflict in the church, and mind your own business you are being loving? This idea of love is far from biblical.
What exactly does a loving person do? What does God’s kind of love look like, and how is it expressed
in family relationships?
1 John 4:7-8 says that love comes from God, and everyone who loves is born of God, but those who do not love don’t even know God. You don’t have to be among the many Christians who are deceived, believing they know God, yet continue in their unloving and self-serving relational behaviors, showing that in reality they don’t yet know Him. Meditation and study on Love’s Actions will help you see your habitual unloving ways more clearly so you can begin to reconcile your relational conduct to God’s ways, leading you toward a deeper walk with Him that will in turn form deeper bonds with your family.
