The Greatest of These is LOVE

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Valentine's Day is more than a day…

I’ve heard it said that love is blind.
It overlooks what seems unkind.
It seeks intentionally to find
some ways to show you care.

Love shows its colors when you’re blue
through little acts you choose to do
when feelings fade or joys are few.
Love really is a choice.

It turns the cheek and feels the sting
when blindsided by hurtful things
that rob you of your right to sing.
Love never does give up.

So Valentine’s is not a day.
But rather it’s the Jesus way
through what we do and what we say
to put another first.
