How to Have the Best Valentine's Day

I wake early on the day where flowers come and chocolates are given.  Valentine's Day.  It rolls thick off my tongue and I know it well: Love is everything.  Because, for the Christian, if we don't have love...we are nothing.

The Bible Says...

The Bible even says that "love is the fulfillment of the law" (Romans 13:10).  We are told to "bear with one another in love" (Ephesians 4:2).  And for today?  Show love.  Not just in word and tongue, but in deed and in truth (1 John 3:18).  

Why Loving is Really Living...

This?  This is how we really live.  This is how we live well - we love others with everything we have.  We love deeply, we love genuinely, we love because this is not optional, this is commanded.  We love because a Most High King Whose name is Love ever lives and pleads for us.  We love because of His love.  

It's late at night, driving through a glorious sunset, glancing over the prairie fields and harvest tractors.  "The Love of God is greater far, than tongue or pen can ever tell."  Ah, yes.  My words?  They don't even begin, they can't even begin, to describe God's love.  God's love is so great, because God is love!  To really live, we need to really love.

My Goal

And this Valentine's Day - not just today, mind you, but every single day of the year as long as I am ever living, I will love because He first loved us.
