Today is Valentines Day, the day people exspress thier love to thier loved ones. Some people that are single maybe find it just a day to them or some find it lonley cuz they don't have anyone. Just cuz you are single dosn't mean you can't love. Loving someone dosn't have to be mushy kind of love, love isn't supose to be nasty like how Hollywood makes it to be. It is nice to buy things for people or give a friendly card to spread kindness. If you want to show true love think about all the things Jesus did. It was one of His commandments that he had stated. The best kind of love is God's love! What dose love mean to you?
My favourite verse about love is in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, there's so many different kinds of verses about love in the bible, but this verse for today is an interesting one too. Jesus loved us so much that He layed his life down for His friends (us). Now how easy would that be for anyone? I think most of us would give it alot of thought. I'm not saying to go out there and hang yourself up on a cross, but I think if our family or best friends or people we know well were in a line of danger there maybe that moment our adrenaline kicks in to do everything we can to save them and keep them safe if we had to. It dosn't have to be physical sacrifice, there's many other types of sacrifice, like time, material things, money, food, activities. That's a real hard concept to think about for sure, Jesus simply made that choice to save the world! Do you know anybody that would do what Jesus dose? Would you do the same?
As you think about Valentines Day find ways that you can be a light and show God's love and care to others, take a read through some of these lovely verses from these last several days to get you inspired!
