There is never a bad time to focus on the people you love most, but for many couples, February is especially full of lovey-dovey moments, memories, and gestures. If you’re looking for a gift beyond flowers or chocolates (never a bad idea in my book), here are 10 statements from scripture that might spark some ideas on how you can treat your loved ones this Valentine’s Day—and every day!
Show Your Love through Your Actions
Be Willing to Sacrifice for Them
Be Loyal to Your Loved One
Work Together and Share Goals
If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Be Brave in Your Love
Show Honor, Respect, and Preference for Them
Accept Your Loved One Exactly the Way They Are
Don’t Pick Fights, and Show Them That You Care
Serve Them and Love Them as Much as (Or More Than!) You Love Yourself
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
