Ephesians 5:25 NASB "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,"The card, chocolate and flowers would mean nothing if I didn't follow it up! Today's Word is for husbands but we can easily replace the husband wife relationship with any relationship to each other! Giving gifts can be easy as we celebrate St.Valentines Day but the real key to the day should be how we treat those we love. Cards are easy to give, and easy to sign "love you" but the test is whether or not we live it. For years I gave my wife the card, flowers, and chocolate but I didn't follow them up by living the way Christ loves the church. I needed to ask myself, was I, am I, willing to die for her...that's what Christ did for us, His Church. Maybe we need to re-read the words in the card we gave and ask ourselves if we are living that way?! peace, tom
