Yes, the month of love has made it to the day of love; Valentine’s day. We made it to February 14, the day of lovers and sweethearts.
How much does it cost to show your love? Is it a box of chocolates or a diamond engagement ring for you this year? I wonder which one Jesus would choose?
“You can’t worship two gods at once. Loving one god, you’ll end up hating the other. Adoration of one feeds contempt for the other. You can’t worship God and Money both.
“If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds. (Matthew 6:24-26, MSG)
Now don’t get to thinking you can give your love cheap stuff just because God says do fuss. He delights in giving us the desires of our hearts, but he doesn’t want us to worry about them.
A word to the ‘hopefully’ wise. If you have been dating the same gal for several years and still refuse to commit, then either commit with ring and wedding or cut her free to find someone who will; someone who will love and cherish her as she deserves.
Prayer-Father, let us love both in word and in deed, for one without the other is nothing. Amen.
