So its February 14th – Valentine’s Day, and it sure is going to be red and all…But what does it really mean? To love the way we celebrate the day, what does it really mean? I know its just 24hours, and by no means can you suppose to package all your undying love into such a miserly tiny speck of time.
So i wonder, all the flowers, and chocolate bars – if they cannot embody how much you love, why not say it. What does it really mean our loved one?
Well, i went to the book, yes, the book, thats been there the longest, and had the biggest influence of all books. In there, i found the familiar ‘Love is Patient, Love is Kind’ passage in 1Corinthians 13.
But in the same book, there is the atypical Romans 12: verse 9 to 21. Here its Love in Action! Pure Simple.
My challenge to us all, is, as we celebrate Valentine’s today, How much of our Love is really Action? Afterall, if we do it everyday, it will become a habit – and individuals will be changed. Daughters will gleen sacrifices of their mothers, and happilly grow into them. Sons will understand honor, from their fathers. Families will be changed, communities transformed, villages turned on their heads – nations, will smile at their former selves.
Love will Change the World – one act at a time.
