It is time for the pagan fertility rites of upcoming spring.
The world, and sadly far too many in the “church”, embrace these events without a second thought.
We buy into the world’s concept of love.
Such should not be.
Be reminded of what the Word says love is.
Read aloud inserting the parenthetical “love” for emphasis and reminder.
Love is patient
love is kind and
(love) is not jealous;
love does not brag and
(love) is not arrogant,
(love) does not act unbecomingly;
(love) it does not seek its own,
(love) is not provoked,
(love) does not take into account a wrong suffered,
(love) does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but
(love) rejoices with the truth;
(love) bears all things,
(love) believes all things,
(love) hopes all things,
(love) endures all things.
Love never fails;
True love is found only in/through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Not in friend and family…phileo.
Not is the flesh…eros.
Only in the Lord…agape.
Anything else is fraudulent and powerless.
Love the Lord.
Love OneAnother in the Lord.
