This month we celebrate Valentine's Day. As you all know, Valentine's Day is when we send cards to friends and sweethearts to tell them we love them. There are many different types of valentines from which to choose. Some have candy attached to them, some have chewing gum. Some valentines may come with a little stuffed animal. Some valentines are funny, some are serious. Some of them have a message of friendship and some have a romantic message. Most of the valentines have hearts on them because the heart is used to represent love. Valentines are a nice way to say, "I love you". I want to tell you about the most beautiful valentine I have ever received. It was a cross. It is beautiful because it represents the greatest love I have ever known. It represents Jesus' love for me. The Bible says, "greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends". That is what Jesus did when He died on the cross. He gave his life for me. That is why I say that the cross is the most beautiful valentine I have ever received. Jesus is the only one who has ever loved me enough to die for me. Do you think Jesus wants a valentine from me? I think He does. But I don't think he wants a paper valentine. I think he wants me to show my love for him by giving my heart and life to Him. After all, he gave his life for me.
Be Bold In Christ,
