Show Your Love
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” John 1:14 (niv)
As a novelist, I’ve always appreciated the power of words. Words can immerse a reader in a setting, evoke emotion, and establish connections. One of the key skills that fiction writers discover is that it’s more effective to “show” rather than “tell.” If a writer paints a scene where the hero pauses to help a child with a skinned knee, we get a more effective glimpse of the character’s kindness than if the narrator spent several sentences telling us about the hero’s sensitive and caring qualities. The slump of a mother’s shoulders by the hospital bed of her child invites us deeper into her emo- tional state than a line telling us, “She felt sad.”
FAITH STEP: Think of one way to show others your love today.
