Your Divine Valentine

A Valentine may play a love song for you,
but God sings you the sweetest love song in the universe:
"The Lord your God... will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
(Zephaniah 3:17)

A Valentine may give you flowers,
but God sent you the most beautiful Rose of all; Jesus:

"I am the Rose of Sharon, and the Lily of the valleys."
(Song of Solomon 2:1)

A Valentine may bring you chocolates,
but God provides you with something even sweeter; His Word:

"How sweet are Your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

(Psalm 119:103)

A Valentine may love you for a lifetime,
but God loved you before you were born
and will love you for all eternity:

"Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love...
with lovingkindness I have drawn you."

(Jeremiah 31:3)

The first Valentine message is still the best one ever sent:

The First Valentine
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
