Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Who is your Valentine? My husband likes to joke that every day is Valentine’s Day for me because I have him. He also likes to tease me that Valentine’s Day is just another way for me to milk him out of his hard earned money. I love his sense of humor.
Children enjoy making Valentine’s Day cards to give to their friends. My children loved taking an ugly shoebox and transforming it into a beautiful masterpiece decorated in red, white, and pink hearts.
I deeply love my husband and my family. However, my true love is my Lord and Savior, Jesus. He is my perfect husband, friend, and provider. Every day, He shows His love for me in so many ways. After all, He is love personified.
Love Is Kind. Jesus Is Kind.
Love Is Patient. Jesus Is Patient.
Love Easily Forgives. Jesus Easily Forgives.
Love Is Never Selfish. Jesus Is Never Selfish.
Love Is Self-Sacrificing. Jesus Sacrificed His Life.
Love Covers Many Sins. Jesus Covered Many Sins.
Love Provides. Jesus Provides.
Love Is Powerful. Jesus Is Powerful.
Love Is Free. Jesus Gives Freely.
I could add many more comparisons to this list. The implications of it are profound. When we show true love to the people in our life, we are teaching them about Jesus. 1 John 4:8 tells us, “Whoever does not love does not know God because God is love.”
Remember that, by giving love to others, you can become a living testament of the love of Jesus! Happy Valentine’s Day!
