Knit your hearts with an unslipping knot.
For as long as i can remember, Valentine's Day has had a romantic connotation associated with it. When you read of its origin and the history surrounding St. Valentine you come to understand that this man was held in high regard by those around him as one who had compassion on young couples. The commercialism, however, has taken much of the true sentiment away from the "holiday" and often distorts the sincere and simple message that such a day should actual commemorate. Love is so much MORE than romance .... Love is so much MORE than the emotional stirrings of the heart ....
The very 1st Valentine was sent almost 2,000 years ago when God, the Father, sent His One and Only Son to be a Sacrifice so that my heart would forever be His!
This is how much God loved the world: He gave His Son, His one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending His Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trust in Him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust Him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person's failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to Him. (John 3:16)
True love emulates ... True Love mentors .... True Love renews and restores .... and our True Love should be based on and shared with our First Love ... our Heavenly Father ...
We love Him, because He FIRST loved us!
