1 John 3:18. Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue but in deed and truth. 

John is not writing to little children here.  He is writing to adults who are acting like little children.  Before we judge these adults too harshly we must look at ourselves.  How many times have we verbally expressed  concern, sympathy or love for someone while thinking they are getting what they deserve?  John writes if we only express love with our words we are not speaking in truth.  Love is a verb of action.  If we only talk about verbs there is no action and the verbs become subjects.  A word of love must be followed with an action to be love.  Our question is are we willing to put action on our words of love?  We and do this by asking God hat it is He wants to do through us to express His love in each and every situation.
