It’s Valentine’s Day, and love is in the air. What is love? Most of us view love as passion, infatuation, strong feelings. This is a great opportunity to display God’s character since love is a topic of interest on this particular day.
1 John chapter 4 verses 8 and 16 tell us “God is love”. So if we can define love, we gain an understanding of who God is. I Corinthians 13:4-8 gives us a list of what love is, which is also a list of characteristics of God.
God is patient, God is kind. He does not envy, he does not boast, he is not proud. He is not rude, he is not self-seeking, he is not easily angered, he keeps no record of wrongs. God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. He always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. God never fails.
