Little Children: Love in acts not in the spoken word

Love in acts not in the spoken word

1 John 3:17-22

17 But whoso hath this world’s good (good, living), and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth (abide) the love of God in him?

18 My little children, let us not love in word (spoken word), neither in tongue (language); but in deed (work or labor) and in truth.

19 And hereby (resting within this) we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure (faith) our hearts before him.

20 For if (hypothetical but possible condition based future circumstances) our heart condemn (to note against, hence to think ill) us, God is greater (large of physical magnitude) than our heart, and knoweth all things.

21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence (the speaking of all one thinks; ie free spokeness) toward God.

22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
