Feb. 17, 2019 - 6th Sunday in Ord. Time May you share the love which GOD has given you and help enrich the lives of those who touch your life.
On Thursday of last week we celebrated Valentine Day. It was a day when many people give gifts of love to the special people in their lives. It is a GOoD thing to show one’s love for others and to gift the person(s) who are meaningful to you. What if you take the time to choose a special gift for your loved one and you wrap it up and present it to that person, and the person takes the gift and puts it on a shelf, unopened, how would you feel? You might feel disappointed, even upset. You might feel rejected and dejected.
GOD is an even greater lover. GOD constantly gifts us with special presents, but sometimes we fail to appreciate and use the gifts which GOD gives us. We reject the love of GOD symbolized by the gifts which GOD gives. If we, on the other hand, gratefully accept what GOD bestows upon us and appreciate GOD’s presence in the presents, then we demonstrate our desire to have GOD be the focus of our lives.
