In a world full of hurting and sometimes hateful people,
Maybe you’ve had your heart broken. Twice. Ten times. Maybe even more,
Maybe there are people completely undeserving of your love,
Maybe your faith is mocked,
Maybe bitterness from past pain has settled in like a heavy coat,
Love not because it’s easy, not because someone deserves it, not because fear is absent or your past pain has been erased, but love because it’s our response to the One who loved us first.
We love because He first loved us. – 1 John 4:19
One of my favorite posts on my personal blog was the one where I wrote about Love. I referenced this video in the post but I couldn’t resist posting it again in honor of Valentine’s Day. May it brighten your day of love like it has mine.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
