Love is so important. Not just the kind of love I have for the caramel – vanilla creamer, I put in my coffee. The love you have for others. You know, for your family, your friends, your peeps. People do things in the name of love. They write songs & poems about love. They make proclamations of their unfeigning love in the way of spray painted words at the top of water towers. Love makes you serious. Love makes you crazy & stupid. Ahhh, love, there has even been a day set aside to officially show people you love them. But is love more than words? Yes, love is action. You can tell someone you love them, but if you turn around & don’t put some effort into showing them some kind of attention- is that really love? The ultimate gift of love came to us in the form of the cross.
Can you image God saying, “I love these people I created.” Then, not putting some action to those words? God knows loves.
I John 4:8 says He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Who would be a better teacher than the originator? He sent His Son to die on the cross for us, so that we may have remission of sins. Now that’s love.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit with me today. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Remember to tell your loved ones
how much they mean to you. As for me, I have to be going because I should be washing clothes.
