“The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” (1 John 4:8)
That is some strong words. Let me try to put that in my vernacular. “If you don’t know God you don’t know how to love and if you know God you are going to show genuine love because God is love.”
Do you think perhaps we have distorted the word LOVE. I cannot help but notice all the advertisements focusing on Valentine’s Day. Does how we behave and what we do on this particular day really describe love?
The kid was asked “what about broccoli” and she said “I love broccoli”. When the broccoli was passed at the table she did not take any out on her plate. The hostess reminded her that she had said she loved broccoli. The kid said “I love broccoli but I sure as heck don’t eat it.”
This Valentine’s Day I challenge you to think about it when you say “I love you” to the one you consider to be your valentine. And especially when you tell God you love Him.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!
