With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, the true meaning of love can get lost underneath the candy, gifts, and giant stuffed animals. Today’s youth may view love as something to be bought and wrapped. In reality, love is beyond a price. As parents, it’s our responsibility to teach our children about the true meaning of love in ways that can be applied in their lives today and for years to come. If we can demonstrate to our children what love truly means, we can rest a little easier knowing that they have an example to follow when they get older.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV).
Happy Valentine's Day!
