In our personal lives or at work, our passions direct our actions generally. We take time to seek, search and shop for the things that we feel will add satisfaction or complete our needs and wants.
That's what happened years ago. "God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him", I John 4:10. God
sought our well-being by allowing Jesus to stand in our stead for the wrongdoing that we did.
Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. I John 4:11. This point is actionable.
There are opportunities to assist and bolster those in our families, neighborhoods, community sites and coworkers. Why? "We have known, and believed the love that God has for us, God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God and God in Him," 1 John 4:16.
