Happy Valentine’s Day! Enjoy your loved ones today…and give yourself a hug too! Whether or not we feel it or believe it, our Creator is LOVE, and LOVE made all things in LOVE and for LOVE. And since we have been created in LOVE, we fulfill our destiny and purpose each and every day when we love the ONE who created us and when we love the OTHERS placed within our lives. Be careful then, how you live and how you love. Is your love life authentic? Or are you loving with the ebb and flow of your emotions? Not sure? Then you might want to review the definition of TRUE LOVE as defined by the AUTHOR of LOVE.
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
Love never dies.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
(from THE MESSAGE: The Bible in Contemporary Language)
