Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth

John the Evangelist, oil on panel by Hans Memling, circa 1468

The quote above is by John the Evangelist, also known as the apostle whom Jesus loved. It is taken from the Bible, the First Epistle of John.

The quote encourages us to let not only our words but also our actions speak volumes of our sincere love for our fellowmen and of God.
