Hello friends! It’s Valentine’s Day, and that means love is in the air! But if you’re a Christian like me, you might be wondering how this holiday fits in with our faith. Is it just all about candy hearts and cheesy cards, or is there something more to it?
Well, thinking about it… it’s a bit of both! On one hand, Valentine’s Day has become a super commercial holiday that’s all about romance and relationships. But on the other hand, there are some Christian roots to the holiday that we can totally appreciate.
For starters, there’s the story of St. Valentine. He was a total boss who lived way back in the 3rd century and he performed marriages for Christian couples when it was illegal to do so. That’s pretty awesome, if you ask me! So that’s why some Christians see Valentine’s Day as a way to honor this brave guy who stood up for love and marriage.
Plus, the Bible talks a lot about love, so it’s not like there’s no connection between Christianity and Valentine’s Day. I’m sure many other fellow Christians use this holiday as an opportunity to show love and appreciation to their friends and family, not just their significant other.
But hey, if you’re not into all the hearts and flowers, that’s totally cool too. You can still be a loving person and honor God in your own way. At the end of the day, it’s all about living out the values of love, kindness, and compassion every day, not just on February 14th.
So, whether you’re spending the day with your boo, your friends, or just by yourself, remember that love is a powerful force that comes straight from God. And that’s something worth celebrating every day, not just on Valentine’s Day!
