America celebrates Valentine’s Day, a day of love, annually on February 14. It was named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentine. On this day, eros, romantic love is expressed in many ways and some couples get engaged or married. In recent times on this day, people also express their love to their children, parents, and friends.
What is love? Love is an action word, not a feeling. When you love someone, you want to help meet their needs—tangible and intangible.
God is love. He is the source of love. God’s love for mankind is agape love, it’s an unconditional, everlasting love. It is not dependent on mankind’s sinful qualities but on mankind’s greatest need, salvation. Jesus is the proof of God’s love.
God has set the example of love and has commanded us to love one another. As Christians, let’s imitate Him and walk in love to all, creating a win-win situation. Our giving of love produces a harvest of met needs, blessings, happiness, relief, comfort, thanksgiving, and rejoicing for the recipient. As the giver of love, we feel blessed to be a blessing!
Let’s express our love for one another daily, not just on Valentine’s Day!
