During the single week of the year when we can’t get away from all things heart-related…you know, chocolate, jewelry, flowers, etc…the great irony is that the more marketers try to convince us that we need these tangible expressions to prove our love…the more we instinctively know in our hearts that they are missing the mark of what real love looks like.
In case you’ve gone under the spell of the marketer’s anemic version of Valentine’s Day and are a tad bit confused on how to best demonstrate true love to those you truly love….here’s the final word on expressing genuine love (not just on Valentine’s Day…but 365 days a year.)
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13
Now this is the way to show someone you love them. 🙂
On Valentine’s Day.
