The month of February is forever associated with the word LOVE! February is the Love Month! Valentine’s Day! Giving presents and showing signs of our love and adoration to others…Does this mean that the other 11 months of the year should be void of love? Absolutely not but there is something special about February…It may be an acute awareness of how we should focus our love towards someone special in our lives.

If we focus all our energy to show gratitude for the one person we truly love into one day (Valentine’s Day), then we have 364 days to show others, our neighbors, the love that should emanate from our very soul because the spirit of Jesus Christ lives in us. Jesus tells us that our neighbors are all around us!

In Gal 6:2, Paul writes “Carry each other’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

So if we carry each others burdens (helping because we see people’s needs and hurts through God’s eyes) we fulfill the Law of Christ.

So what is the “Law of Christ”?

May I quote a line from Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians…“And now I will show you the most excellent way.”

Go and read the 13 verses of 1 Corinthians 13. Go to verses 4 through 8 and put God in lieu of love because scripture tells us that God is Love. Then put your name in lieu of love because we are to be imitators of God!

May the Love of Christ dwell richly in you!
