God’s Valentine

Read: 1 John 3:1 niv

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!”

How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Give away cards or candy? Maybe you know someone who received a big bunch of flowers. Sometimes in school, children exchange Valentines with the kids in class. Do you do that? Have you ever written a poem for someone you love?

We celebrate Valentine’s Day by showing others how much we care about them. It’s nice to feel loved. Did you know there is someone who loves you more than anyone else in the world? God! We have a book that tells all about his love for us – the Bible. Since Valentines contain messages of love, the Bible is kind of like God’s Valentine to us, isn’t it?

God sent this ‘valentine’ a long time ago, long before you were born, but He had YOU in mind when He sent it. That seems topsy turvy, but God knew you before you were even born, and loved you from the very beginning. Turn to John 3:16 in God’s Valentine, and read what God did for YOU because He loves you so much.

Topsy Turvy Tip: Do you have someone who means a lot to you? Tell that person you love him, and God loves him, too!

Life without Christ is topsy turvy! ™
