Valentine’s Day: In Praise of Love

by Robert

‘”Love never fails” … so if it fails, it wasn’t love.’

I’ve failed my wife many times, but her love has never failed me yet. She is altogether lovely to me.

Her faithfulness to me may not be glamorous. It may not be comprehensible. It may not seem impressive.

But I am humbled by her love for me which remains faithful even when I am faithless.

She inspires me to praise the Lord, because in her love I see a reflection of the love of God, who loves us despite who we are.

In praising love I’m not praising Eros/Cupid. I’m praising the God who loved me and gave His Son for me so that I don’t have to perish but have eternal life.

To Him be the glory, both now and forevermore, amen.
