Won’t you be my Valentine?
This is love: He loved us long before we loved him. It was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins.1 John 4:10 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,Deuteronomy 7:9
Grace and peace for your Valentine’s Day Dear Hearts. Today I am reminded that LOVE goes much deeper than cards, candy and flowers.
Today I am reminded that LOVE is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up. True LOVE never ends…
Today, when I tell someone, “I love you,” I’ll try to really love them.
