Truth and Beauty

Beauty in Actions

   Jesus Christ came to earth as a manifestation of God’s love to the world. He spent a large part of his ministry going from place to place, doing good, and thereby alleviating suffering. Jesus’ actions of compassion included healing the sick, casting out demons, feeding the hungry, raising the dead, and giving hope for a better life hereafter. He instructed his followers to love one another and to do unto others as they have seen him do. This would glorify the Father in heaven. (See John 3:16; Matthew 10:5-8; 14:14; 15:37; Luke 9:11-17; John 13:34-35; Matthew 5:14-16; Philippians 1:11; Titus 2:14.)

   Actions have impact – it is said that actions speak louder than words. We tend to remember what people did for us rather than what they said or promised to do. If a picture is worth a thousand words, an action may be worth ten thousand or more. Loving actions are in harmony with the will of God who is love – and may indeed be God’s answer to someone’s need. Through our loving actions, people may see God at work in their lives. Interestingly, the reverse is also true. Jesus said that when we help and meet the needs of others by relieving their hunger, thirst, lack of clothing, and loneliness, we are serving Christ himself (See Matthew 25:35-36; cf. Prov. 19:17).

A new command I give you: Love another.
As I have loved you,
you must love one another.
By this all men will know
that you are my disciples,
if you love one another.
(John 13:34-35)

Marital faithfulness 


 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
(1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
