If you went to church in the 90’s you no doubt heard the group DC Talk. Their music topped the Christian music charts and influenced yours truly to perform their hit song “Luv Is A Verb” at our annual field talent competition when “Christian Rap” was a category (Yes – that was a thing).
It was not the catchy tune that drew in an audience alone, it was a message the church was craving to comprehend. It was not enough to say we loved – but our actions and reactions to others would be the true source of our message.
As followers of Christ, we not only celebrate love in seasons we allow it to become a part of our daily routine. 1 John 3:18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
The great DC talk said:
Words come easy but don’t mean much
When the words they’re sayin’ we can’t put trust in
We’re talkin’ ’bout love in a different light
And if we all learn to love it would be just right
Our challenge this week will be to seek ways we allow our family, our church, and our neighbors to not only hear that we love them but to experience that love as well.
Oh, and if you were still wondering I was “Down with the dc Talk, d- d- down with the dc Talk” and we took 1st place. 😉
