Happy Valentine’s Day. I hope you have plans to do something special with the one (ones) you love.
It is good that we have set aside a day to show others how much we love them. After all, we do need to be reminded from time to time. But wouldn’t it be wonderful if we remembered to express that love every day?
Of course, there are different kinds of love. Today we are celebrating romantic love. For love we share every day, I believe the best definition is the one in 1 Corinthians 13:4.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, (love) is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
Imagine if we all took that definition of love to heart and practiced it each day. What a wonderful world this would be. It would be God’s kingdom here on earth.
