Let all that you do be done in love.I Corinthians 16:14
February is always dedicated to all things love due to Valentine's Day on February 14th. Today's scripture also speaks of love, but it is love that goes far beyond the candy hearts, chocolate loving, romance driven idea represented by Valentine's Day. This scripture speaks to the love that comes from God and this love can work in us and through us if we allow God to have reign in our lives. God's love assures us that there is a peace that passes all understanding that is offered to us moment by moment. God's love assures us that we can be forgiven for wrongdoing through the sacrifice made by Jesus for humankind. God's love assures us that nothing can ever separate us from Him. Long after the chocolate hearts have been consumed and the rose petals have faded and fallen to the ground, the love that God offers will still be there. It's not consumer oriented like Valentine's Day because God's love cannot be bought or sold. It just is. Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift through Jesus. And, Happy Valentine's Day to all.
