Ah, the day of LOVE. What better time to let those around you know that you love them, regardless of what they may do ~ or what you may do ~ that would possibly contradict the fact that you truly do love them.
Not only our mortal beings, but also the One that loves us unconditionally. John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that He gave…” Sometimes we forget this tidbit. God loved us enough to give His son for our sins…and we trample over that love. We take it for granted and abuse it (or at least I know I do). It’s time to start giving. Give of your time, your money, your energy…of ‘self’. Sometimes it’s easy to give of our money, we drop a few dollars in the collection box/can and don’t give it another thought. It’s time to give of ourselves…to be willing to be available to those around us. It may be inconvenient sometimes and we may rather give of monetary items. But if we call ourselves ‘christian’ how can we not model ourselves after our Creator and give? He gave His all ~ His life ~ how can we do less?
It’s a struggle I have, to show love. It means you have to be vulnerable and trust. Two issues I have and am working on. Hopefully one day I will be able to be Christ like and able to give of myself unconditionally. So on this day of ‘love’ I look inward and reevaluate my thoughts and processes and consider the True Love of the world…and I will strive to be more like Him (not saying it’s going to happen overnight and I’ll just ‘poof’ be fixed and perfect…it’s a process folks).
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone…let your loved ones know they’re loved. Let those around you know they are loved, you may be that ‘umph’ someone needs to make it through their day.
God is Love…share that!!
