This next Thursday, most of us will celebrate Valentine’s Day. It has turned in to what I like to call a “Hallmark Holiday”, meaning that it has lost most meaning and only provides income for those who sell “stuff” to make the holiday “special”. Don’t get me wrong, I like Valentine’s Day as much as the next guy, but it isn’t the only day that I set aside to tell my wife how much I love her. Hopefully, I do that each day, all year long.
I remember as a young boy in grade school, Valentine’s Day was a bit awkward. The teacher made it easier in saying that “if you give to one, you have to give to all”, which spared me the embarrassment of giving a Valentine Card to the little girl that I liked. But, I remember getting one, once, that had more than just the little girl’s name on it; it also had a little note tucked away inside the envelope that said, “cute boy”. I didn’t find that note until a few years later. By then it was “too late”.
God has sent us a “love note”, too, but not in the way that is common on Valentine’s Day. God tells us He loves us everyday, not just on one special day that is set aside. Tomorrow, we’ll take a look at God’s Valentine, John 3:16.
Tomorrow evening, we’ll finish up our survey of the “One Chapter Wonders” with the book of Third John. Join us as we take a look at “No Greater Joy”.
At 2 pm tomorrow afternoon, we’ll go to Wagoner Care Center for our monthly service. Come and join us as we sing and visit.
