February is the month of the year we spend a lot of time thinking about love. We buy our spouses gifts to show them how much we love them and how much they mean to us. We try to go the extra mile to make them feel appreciated. But there’s another one we should spend, not just February but every month, thinking about how we can show our love to Him.
A man, I would consider a mentor, gave me this poem and I think it expresses perfectly how we can show our love to Him.
If you would give a gift to Jesus--
Give it to the poor of earth;
If you would serve His love and missions--
Serve by deeds of Christian worth;
If you would give him gifts of comfort--
Comfort others with grace;
If you would dry His tears of sorrow--
Dry them on another’s face.
Every act of love and kindness
You bestow on one, in need,
Is a precious gift to Jesus
And a service, in His creed.
Give of heart and hand and spirit
Every gift you can afford
For—in giving unto others--
You are giving to the Lord
During this season of love do your best to look for opportunities to show Him love, by acting out love for someone else.
