Rich in Love


Its Valentine’s Day this Sunday, historically the day goes back to the middle ages. These days it seems to be Romance Day. There are many romance & love stories in the Bible. Love & romance can take you up higher than the clouds & it can bring you down into the depths of despair. Just look to the life of Samson, the long haired lover from Mahaneh Dan. Judges 14, 15 & the not so sweet 16.

There are good reasons why God places boundaries on our relationships, not to spoil our fun but to enrich our lives with His blessing, timing & wisdom. Love is like Algebra, it has angles & degrees, brackets & divisions. But it’s more than a concept & its greatest & purest measure can be found in God. Ps 63:1-11.

Romeo & Juliet & Samson & Delilah are both pictures of love, so is Jesus & Joshua, David & Bathsheba, David & Jonathon (not romance & sexual but friendship).In God’s book love & sexuality have limits lest we be overcome & lose our way. The Apostle Paul was single but knew of God’s great love shown in Jesus.

Faith reminds us God’s love is better than life & stronger than death.


Psalm 63 by Sons of Korah
