Courage Before God

18 Little children [i.e., dear ones], we should not [merely] claim to love [people], or [even just] talk about it, but [we should love] by what we do [for them] in a genuine way. 19 And this is how we will know that we are following [God's] truth, and will have assurance [of it] in our hearts and before God [as well]. 20 But, if our hearts condemn us [for not demonstrating God's love for others], surely God, who is greater than our hearts [will also condemn us], because He knows all things.
