It's Valentine's Day!! So what?! Well, let me tell YOU what's WHAT!!

As we celebrate a marketer's dream today, I would like to remind you of what the REAL definition of love is on this Lover's Holiday.

From 1 Corinthians 13:4-8a in The Message...

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.

So, if you find yourself suddenly very aware of how incredibly single you are, OR how insanely lonely you are, OR how freakishly miserable you are, OR how nauseatingly in LOVE you are, be reminded of what love really is.  Be reminded, too, of the One who loves you more than much as to give His own life for you.  Remember who you are and Whose you are!!  HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, EVERYONE!!

  1. Love it! We actually did a Valentine's day theme for our Bible study last week. Except it was "How He Loves Us" and we helped remind each other what love really is. It was really cool, and thank you for the reminder! P.S. I am loving your blog!
