“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.”
~ 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
Valentines Day is a day where everyone comes together to celebrate love, and the loved ones in their lives. But for many people, Valentine’s Day can be a day that is dreaded because they are not in romantic relationship.
Many people are puzzled about love because they don’t know what love really is, and that can make love seem like a scary thing.
When we understand what real love is, we can understand how to best love others and ourselves.
Love isn’t a feeling.
Love is action.
Love isn’t what you hope to get out of a relationship.
Love is what you do for the other person.
Love is putting others needs before your own.
Love can be exchanged with all of the people in your life: Family, friends, coworkers, or even strangers.
True love isn’t romance.
True love is found in the love of God!
God is love.
God is our example for love.
“God so loved the world that He gave…”
True love is going out of your way to show other’s God’s Love.
Live a life of love.
Live a life of action.
Don’t just see a need- Meet it.
Don’t just tell someone you love them- Act on it.
Don’t just say that you love God- Live your life for Him!
This Valentine’s Day I encourage you to look outside the normal box of “Romantic Love”, and show your love and appreciation for all of the people you love in your life!
