The greatest love

It is said that Valentine's Day is in memory of a follower of Christ who would not renounce his Lord and died a martyr. His farewell note to the jailer's daughter, with whom he had established a friendship was signed, "From your Valentine." There are a lot of things people call love these days. Some quite twisted and some simply misguided or superficial......but I don't think anyone can argue with this definition of true love:

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not selfseeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.
