In case you haven't noticed, everything is being revolved around Valentine's Day. :P
Most of the boyfriends, girlfriends, and spouses in the world are doing something cute and special around this time. I see guys with a bouquet of flowers, especially roses, for their significant others.
Dating and Teens
In Western culture, it seems like teenage dating is the norm. You see teens dating in media and in real life. I shudder to think that kids ages 11 or 12 start to think about dating. There are some successful relationships that lasted from the teenage years to adulthood, but there are many relationships that don't last very long. Personally, I believe that teens should wait until they are adults to date.
This is what I define love:
Love is a feeling; it is an action; it is something chased after and longed for.
Love is family.
Love is friends
Love is sacrificing for someone else.
Love is Christ's sacrifice.
The ultimate act of love is when Christ died for the whole world. He carried all the sins of the past, present, and future. So, that we may be with Him in Heaven when Christ comes back again.
That is real love and Christ offers you that love.
What the Bible says
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."
