February 14—Love
The word for today is love.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34-35).

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another” (1 John 4:11). “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8).

“And beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity” (Col. 3:14).

“Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” (1 Cor. 13:4-7).

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).

“‘He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me; and he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him, and will disclose Myself to him’” (John 14:21).

How about singing a prayer, “More Love to Thee”: “More love to Thee, O Christ, More love to Thee! Hear Thou the prayer I make On bended knee. This is my earnest plea: More love, O Christ, to Thee; More love to Thee, More love to Thee!”

Prayer: “How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God. How vast is the sum of them” (Ps. 139:17).
