The season of “love” is upon us again. The Valentine cards fill the racks and candy hits the market big time.
I always wonder as this time comes around if we really understand LOVE. It isn’t lust. It isn’t the passion of a season and then moving on.
Many pastors (probably all) have had couples choose 1 Corinthians 13 as a part of wedding ceremonies. But it is more than about marriage. Sure, it is a great message to define the hard work of love in our marriages. But the words are written as a lesson to community.
