"Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony." (Colossians 3:14)

One thing is the same in any language, a smile. Much can be communicated by a smile: a greeting, acceptance, thanks, gratitude.

Tears, also, are the same in any language. Tears can express sorrow and sadness, grief, loss, or pain. Even if you don't speak the same word language, there's a communication shared by tears.

The best thing that's the same in any language is the love of God. God's love transcends any language barrier. And it is the greatest of all love, enduring and lasting forever until the end of time and beyond.

When he was very old, the disciple John wrote for us to read in 2009 these words, "Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth." (1 John 3:18)

Yes, we can share smiles, even tears, and the very best of all is to share love, the love of our amazing, awesome, mighty, and loving God.
