H A P P Y ❤️ V A L E N T I N E ‘ S ❤️ D A Y
In the spirit of all things lovely, I spent the morning in devotion about what God has to say about love. It has nothing to do with flowers and chocolates or giant teddy bears and expensive gifts. Those things are acts and gestures to show ones live, but love is not those things. 1 Corinthians 13 beautifully describes love and all of its powerful and wonderful attributes. Enjoy this fun holiday and indulge in a cupcake or 2 or 3 😉 but also make time to really carry out the values of love. This goes beyond Valentine’s Day, and today can be like hitting the reset on how you show love.
1 Corinthians 13
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
