Letter #137: Choosing Love

February 14, 2011

Dear love,

Out of 365 days in the year, today, you are supposed to be celebrated the most. This year, I want to really love people well regardless of the day. So instead of making fun of Valentine’s Day, I’m going to choose you.

Today, I ponder the most commonly used wedding Scripture. No, I’m not getting married, but I am living in a world and a sinful state that I don’t want to love people. Today, I attempt to make you be this type of love in my life. These attributes will not just come to me. I must choose them; pray for them. Patience. Humble. Selfless. Enduring. I know I will fail greatly in this pursuit, but it doesn’t mean I will not try. I want to choose this kind of love:

“Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails;” 1 Cor. 13:4-8

Happy Valentine’s Day family and friends! May we all love better not just today but everyday.

Chooser of you
