all hat no cattle

The Bible does not say:
When you get healed, love;

When you grow up, love;
when you feel loving, love,

When you get it together and have dealt with all your 
mother/father/husband/children wounds, 

then you are able to love.

It does say:

1 John 3:17-20
If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God's love? It disappears. And you made it disappear.

My dear children, let's not just talk about love; let's practice real love. This is the only way we'll know we're living truly, living in God's reality. It's also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it. For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves.
