Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast, and it is not proud, 1 Corinthians 13:4
Welcome to yet another Valentines' Day. To many this is another way for Hallmark to sell cards or Pro Flowers to market overpriced roses. It is a good day never the less whether you celebrate it or not because it puts the focus on love. Granted, mostly romantic love, but love of all kinds. Many are married or engaged on this special day, Love is between friends, family members, and that special someone.
Let's think about what it means to love. Love is not self centered. It wants to please the other person. Love is giving, not taking. Love is a happy feeling. Love is unconditional. Love does not care what you have done but loves and forgives. Love always thinks how to please and wants to do special things.
So whether it is February 14th or the day after or the day after that keep love alive in your heart. Love is what God wants from us. It is His greatest commandment.
PRAYER: Lord I love you. I thank you for those in my life who love me despite my flaws and shortcomings. I thank you that your love for us never fails. In Jesus' name. Amen.
