Saint Valentine

February is the month for Valentine’s Day. It is a little obscure how it came to be a day honoring some early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine. However, it has become a day of romance and friendship for many years. If you go into any grocery store, you will see floral arrangements, balloons, cards, and chocolate candy displays encouraging you to buy a Valentine for your favorite person. But the best way to celebrate is to share a Bible Verse for Valentine’s Day. 

A Day to Celebrate Everyone

When I attended elementary school, every child was expected to bring Valentine’s card for their classmate. It was important that no one is left out. Just like it is important for every classmate to be included in receiving a little love, it is important for the 8 billion people in the world, as reported by Worldometer, to receive love. As Christ’s followers, the Bible identifies many ways that we receive and give love.
