Daily Devotion: Let Others Know You Love Them

Bible Reading: I Corinthians 13

Key Verse: Verse 8 - "Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away."

Key Words: Charity never faileth

On this Valentine’s Day it is wise for each of us on this day of “self-gratification” to remember that love, real love doesn’t focus on self but on the one they love.

William Gladstone, in announcing the death of Princess Alice of the House of Commons, told a touching story. The little daughter of the Princess was seriously ill with diphtheria. The doctors told the princess not to kiss her little daughter and endanger her life by breathing the child’s breath. Once when the child was struggling to breathe, the mother, forgetting herself entirely, took the little one into her arms to keep her from choking to death. Rasping and struggling for her life, the child said, “Momma, kiss me!” Without thinking of herself the mother tenderly kissed her daughter. She got diphtheria and some days thereafter she went to be forever with the Lord. Real love forgets self. Real love knows no danger. Real love doesn’t count the cost. The Bible says, “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it” (Song of Solomon 8:7).

What to do:
✞ Every day we should let our spouse know that we love them.
