Hearts! Hearts everywhere! Hearts on sweaters and hearts on earrings. Hearts on cards
and hearts on candy. Hearts in store windows. Hearts on Facebook on text messages,
Chances are you'll see literally hundreds of hearts this month because
it is the month we celebrate St. Valentine's Day, a day of love, romance, candy and
1 Peter 1:22 makes a strong connection between love and the heart, but it's not the
kind of connection that sells cards and candy on Valentine's Day. The verse reads,
"Love one another deeply, from the heart."
Cards, candy and flowers are fine. But even better? Try this:
Love is patient,
love is kind
itis not jealous;
love does not brag
it is not arrogant,
It does not act unbecomingly;
it does not seek its own,
it is not provoked,
it does not take into account a wrong suffered,
it does not rejoice in unrighteousness,
but rejoices with the truth;
Love bears all things,
believes all things,
hopes all things,
endures all things.
Love never fails. (1Cor 13:4-8)
