For the singles:
When you are reminded of God’s love, you would understand that you are appreciated and loved! Today is not a day to feel any less than that or to feel bad for yourself. With everything going on today i.e. endless Instagram posts, it is very easy to be discontent or to feel unloved or lonely. Please remember this, we are very important and most definitely loved. The creator of the heavens, earth and all things beautiful, considered us valuable, so much so that He sent His only begotten son to die for us. That is enough for us to be filled with joy everyday, including today!
For those in relationships:
Today is not a day to compromise your Christian values. Yes, today is a day we celebrate love and romance. However, boyfriends/girlfriends should not get husband/wife privileges. There are a lot of ways to be romantic without compromising our Christian values. Exchanging gifts, kind words or going on a romantic date (in an open space), are nice ways to spend your day. Do not fall into the trap of thinking you need to encourage lust to show your partner you love him/her. Also, we do not need to run back to past relationships or exes, in order to not feel alone today. We should not compromise at all!
Enjoy today, spend it with the people you love and show love to everyone. Speak kind words to people you see and make someone feel extra special today.
Happy Valentines Day guys!!
