Attention Men!

J. Fields
Valentine’s Day is coming up very quickly. That’s right, Valentine’s Day 2022 is on Monday, February 14th. You may be thinking that you have plenty of time to make plans but I’m warning you, don’t forget!
Valentine’s Day is known as the day we get to celebrate and show how much we love that special someone in our life. For the ladies, they love this day and even if they try and tell you something different, they are expecting their special man to come through with that one special gift. For all the guys out there, you will most likely either procrastinate and wait until the last moment to pick up the usual flowers and a card or you may forget Valentine’s Day until you are passing by the store on the way home and you realize you once again forgot to plan.
Gentlemen, you can thank me later for the friendly reminder “I’m trying to save us all” but honestly there’s a bigger point that I want us to see. As humans, we have different holidays that we celebrate throughout the year and the “day of love” would be one of them. Can you imagine for just a moment if Jesus Christ would only show us His love only when there was a special day here and there? See, God loves us with an unconditional, all-in kind of love. God loves each one of us so much that John 3:16 states that He gave us His only son to save us from eternal punishment.
Aren’t you glad that God never forgets how much He loves us? Every day God shines His beautiful love over each one of us. God’s love is unconditional, never-ending, never forgetting, and unending. We could all learn an important lesson about true love by understanding who it is we are loved by.
This Valentine’s Day I encourage you to show that special person in your life how much they mean to you, don’t wait until the last minute to remember to tell them I Love You because the last thing you want to happen is to forget and miss your opportunity.
1 John 4:9-10
“This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.”
