What is love?

Valentine’s Day, like all our other holidays, is widely commercialized. It is easy to get wrapped up in the candy, the flowers, the adorable cards and while there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, we tend to forget something. The fact that we’re supposed to love the other 364 days of the year. We ought to celebrate it every day.

Who says you can’t buy her flowers on just a plain-old-ordinary-day?

What is stopping you from getting him a card with a cute cheesy poem “just because?”

And while buying your loved one things is wonderful, your actions speak louder than your words. Because love is a verb.

The greatest demonstration of love is when God sent His only Son to die on a cross for our sins {John 3:16} so that we could have eternal life. We can’t ever top that. However, as His children we can put to work all the things listed above. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we can demonstrate these traits to those in the world around us and to the ones that we love not 1, but all 365 days of the year.

And that is love.
