Thoughts for the Journey
This week our hearts turn to Valentine’s Day – cards-candy, flower, sand extra hugs. But what is
love? “Love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been of God and knows God”
(1 John4:7). Love generates and sustains life. Jesus says the most important commandment is
this: Our God is one Lord. and you must love the Lord the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your being, with all your mind, and with all strength. The second is this. You will love
your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater then these.” (Mark 12:29-31-CEB).
Notice the verbs Jesus uses – must and will. While love is a choice we can make. loving God,
ourselves, and our neighbor is not optional as a Christ follower. In 1 John. 4.19. “we love because
he first loved us” As Christians, we believe every day is a holiday of love!
