Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.
John 21:17 (NLT)
Today is Valentine’s Day. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day. It’s too commercial and honestly, I think we should be going out of our way to show each other love every day, not just one day. But as I pondered this, I started thinking about God. And I wondered how many love letters he would get today. So I wrote one. After that, I started thinking about the people I know that could really use a love pick-me-up; folks who maybe don’t have someone to give them a Valentine. Today, as we celebrate love, let’s celebrate it with God and with the people we know who need an extra heaping helping of it. And while you’re at it, write God a love letter. He loves you very much and is, after all, the author of love.
We love each other because he loved us first.
1 John 4:19 (NLT)
