I John 3:18
I saw this verse in action this morning at a coffee shop that I frequent. When I arrived, there was a man sitting at one of the tables outside, yelling and muttering to anyone who was around. All I could understand of his Visayan was "don't enter" after that I was lost. I gathered my backpack and my computer, ignored him and walked into the coffee shop and began to set up at a table. I could still hear him as I was inside as could the employees. As I watched, one of the employees went over to the window to take a look at him and then did something that surprised me - he walked outside and gave the man a coffee. I have to admit that I thought he was going to tell him to leave the area or something similar, but instead he chose to show love to this man by his actions.
It was a good reminder to me of the importance of showing Jesus to those around me through both my actions and my words.
