My Biblical Valentine’s Day
I like to locate references to “love” in the Bible on Valentine’s Day. According to Nelson’s Complete Concordance of the New American Bible the word “love” is used 377 times, to say nothing of derivatives like “loved” or “loves” or “loving.” The first quotation tells of Abraham’s love for his son Isaac. Number 200 affirms the love in the Trinity when Jesus tells his disciples at the Last Supper “the world must know that I love the Father.” In number 300 Paul admonishes Timothy to be “a continuing example of love.” Need a Valentine card? Let the Bible be your Hallmark or Dayspring. Discover a meaningful Biblical reference and send it to your loved ones. And don’t forget to let God send you a Valentine from his inspired Word.
