Valentine’s Day has arrived, and so we’ll see roses, chocolate, and fancy hearts all everywhere. I’ve always found it fascinating and a little sad when men rush into stores with a desperate look on their faces, hoping they find a gift that keeps them out of trouble. However, I’m convinced that red fuzzy stuff has nothing to do with love. (Chocolate, maybe. LOL)
Everyone wants true romance that lasts a lifetime, not just on Valentines. But how can that happen? Many young people are dumping the idea of marriage to co habitation, as if marriage caused the problem.
We’ll turn to the Bible for answers. After all, God loved us first.
I Corinthians 13 says, “Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,
does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth.
What a description! Can anyone live up to that?
My parents were married for almost fifty-six years when my mother passed away. So it is possible to have a wonderful, affectionate marriage despite the ups and downs life presents. Staying committed to showing your love makes the difference.
