February....my absolute favorite month of all! This month is so exciting to me because it gives us the opportunity to celebrate the greatest gift of all, love. I know this holiday is looked at by many with much disdain, but this year, take the opportunity to take the romance out of it, and focus on the heart and soul of the holiday. LOVE. Love is a commandment that we, as Christians are supposed to fulfill. We are called to simply, love. There are so many hurting, discouraged and lonely people in this world. Although we may not be able to fix every sad, heartbreaking situation people face, we can bring hope and encouragement through LOVE. I strongly encourage you to study 1 Corinthians chapter 13, this month. Verses, 4-7 describe love in the way God intended it to be. Choose one verse a week to apply to your life, this month and watch as the lives of those around are uplifted.
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;
5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;
6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
