Day 14 – Happy Valentine’s Day
Loving each other is a command from God. In Matthew 22:35-40 it says:
One Pharisee, who was an expert on the law of Moses, asked Jesus this question to test him: “Teacher, which command in the law is the most important?” Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and most important command. And the second command is like the first: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ All the law and the writings of the prophets depend on these two commands.”
These commands are not to be taken lightly. It’s serious business.
Today, everywhere we turn we can hear someone saying they “love” someone or something. Do they realize what they’re saying? I don’t think humanity completely understands the true meaning of what love means.
True real love reflects what took place on the cross with Jesus crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection. It was a choice. He chooses to love us. But, the love is so much more than just a choice. It’s the actions, the emotion, and everything in between involved.
What actions of choice do you make toward a love like this?
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father Yahweh, I pray that we fully grasp the true meaning of love and put it into action. In Your precious holy name, amen.
