It blesses the heart
enriches the very soul
Stands the test of time
unchanged since the days of old
It is an invisible tangibility
to be desired and believed in
a life is incomplete
The effortless and continuous flow of its
intricate nature, will forever be evident
and tremendously relevant for all
It is a nice warm gesture, but as 1Peter 4:8 above explains, love is a 'CONTINUOUS' action and motion.
The dictionary explains CONTINUOUS as: "Without break, cessation, or interruption; without intervening space or time; uninterrupted; unbroken; continual; unceasing; constant; continued; protracted; extended; such as a continuous current of electricity".
The dictionary also describes ACTION as thus: The state or process of acting or doing.
From that definition and the verse above, it is safe to say that our expressions of love towards one another should be never-ending like the circumference of a ring. Our love towards each other should be fluid, like water running down a stream. It should be a daily occurrence and not packaged and delivered just one day during of the year.
Yes, it good to show even more love on special occasions, such as birthdays and indeed Valentine’s Day, but we are meant to express love, continuously, regardless if we are single, in a courting relationship or married. There is always someone that we can do something to, for or with, expressing the nature of God's love.
