"Be devoted to one another
in love. Honor one another
above yourselves."

Romans 12:10

February 17, 2022
People usually talk about and focus on love on Valentine's Day. The Bible verse above is a portion of the Bible which speaks about how we as Christians are to show love all the time, to all people, and in all circumstances.

Who will you show godly love to today?
Prayer for Today

Loving God, fill my heart with the love that you freely give. Make love my first and last thoughts. May I love others freely and give to them. Make my spirit a spirit of joy, happiness and love for both my friends and my enemies. Help me love others as abundantly as you have loved me.
