“And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
All week, many of our students have brought in cards and candy for their classmates as we celebrate Valentine’s Day.
We all enjoy this cute day filled with wishes of “Be Mine!” and “Have a Heart!” shared from one child to another.
In the bigger picture, however, true love is much more significant that a cute card and some candy kisses given from one student to another. The Bible teaches us that Christians should be known for the love we show to each other.
The verse above even teaches us that true love (translated as charity in the King James Version) is greater than faith or hope. Love is the lynchpin of all we hold dear as Christians.
Through all of the candy, cards, stuffed animals, and flowers of this season, let’s dedicate ourselves anew to demonstrating the true, committed love of Christ. We have a lost and hurting world all around us. They need so desperately to see this love.
