If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—
and the greatest of these is love.
I love Valentine's Day! A lot of people like to poke fun at this day saying it's just a day made up by the markets to make money and sell products. But I love the idea of a day that we are reminded to show love to others. But today - I have some homework for you.... how about showing love to those that don't expect it? Even someone that you hardly know or rarely talk to.... maybe even that stranger on the street. Celebrate Valentine's Day today by showing love to a stranger..... and remember - Jesus loves you so much! He is with you <3
