On the day after Valentine’s Day, love still prevails

1-John-4-10

On the day after Valentine’s Day, the Verse of the Day for February 15, 2014 continues to focus on love:

1 John 4:10 KJV

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

The lyrics to the popular love song “My Funny Valentine” express the following profound yet simple truth:

Stay, funny Valentine, stay.

Each day is Valentine’s Day.

1-corinthians-13 7-8

And so on the day after Valentine’s Day, love still prevails—the love of God, the highest form of love, called agape, never fails. As 1 Corinthians 13 reminds us:

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

The chapter presenting the greatest definition of the love of God closes with this reminder:

13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love. (New Living Translation)

A previous blog entry on love closed with the Jim Brinkman song performed by Amy Sky: “Love Never Fails.” On the day after Valentine’s Day, the message bears repeating:
