Bible devotions for women
This is the time of year we think about love and what to give those we specially love. Years ago after my son had gone to buy a card on Valentines Day, he said to me, “The scene he saw was so typically male. The guys, even the men who could manage a Fortune 500 company were standing there with a look of frustration that said, “This is the hardest decision I have had to make this week. What on earth do I buy her to show her I love her?”
People can tell you they love you in the most marvelous ways nowadays, with the many creative and beautiful cards on the market. Some even will audibly tell the person you love what they mean to you, and all you need to do is make sure they open the card (no more need to try to be creative). Roses used to be a costly gift to give but thanks to modern agriculture, roses can be given in abundance. Now, if you don’t want to bother with crowds (but you will need to order a little sooner than “the Day”) you can shop on-line and order everything from flowers to pajamas to tell your love you love them.
We enjoy words of love no matter how they are said to us. Don’t we? Yet, in reality it is the actions of love that truly speak to our hearts, not beautiful words or gifts. Yes, I would be nuts to think we women don’t enjoy and appreciate roses, a lovely card, chocolates or diamonds, but if that gift comes from a person that is unloving to us, the gift becomes just a thing.
Let me ask you some questions and I think you will more clearly understand what I am saying about love. Did you have a father that said he loved you, but he abused you? Did you have a mother that said you were her precious baby, but her actions said the opposite? Do you have a husband who gives you expensive gifts but treats you like you aren’t there most of the time? Do you have a child who is always telling you that you are a terrific mother, but says and does things to be mean to you? Do you have a friend who says she is doing something out of love for you, but what she is doing says she doesn’t even like you? When words are said and gifts are given to show love, but they have no actions to back them up, we don’t really feel or think we are loved, do we? Remember that old but true saying, “Actions speak louder than words.”
God’s love is defined by actions! His Word speaks of His relentless actions of love that kept pursuing us, even when we were His enemy. God’s greatest action of love is seen in His Son, Jesus Christ dying for us.
For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Romans 5:10 NASB®
God’s Word makes clear what His love is all about. The Bible says “God is love” in 1 John 4:8. His Word explains to us that He created everything even love. This means that even the need for, thoughts of and feeling of love came from God. Sorry to those of you who thought cupid invented love!
