Throughout the New Testament we read that Jesus asks his followers to love one another, to help one another, and to carry one another’s burdens. Love is an action, not just a proclamation. Yet too often we reduce this simply to doing nice things for others, especially those things that are convenient and easy for us to do. But truly loving others requires that we meet real needs, not just what we think others need.
