Today is widely recognized as Saint Valentines Day and many will be purchasing gifts for their amorous interests. Unfortunately there is not enough love. Are you going to continue wasting your resources? Contrary to popular belief the origins of this day does not have anything to do with celebrating the death of a saint that married couples. Even if it was so that is still idolatrous; Deuteronomy 26:14“I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken away ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given ought thereof for the dead: but I have hearkened to the voice of the LORD my God, and have done according to all that thou hast commanded me.” As the History Channel’s website declares clearly it is an effort to so call Christianize the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. It further explains that Pope Gelasus ended the celebration of Lupercalia by imposing another celebration that had nothing to do with love.
If there is true love there will be no need to buy an expensive gift. Romans 13:8“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.” The way you show love to any, especially your woman or love interest is by keeping the laws towards her. Don’t treat her like a cheap whore, but owe her your love all the days of your life. Song of Solomon 1:2“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.” A real sister that is a woman of virtue understands that your love is better than a wine and dine. Unlike these pagans that have weird rituals, or the women today that might celebrate this year with Donald and next year with another chump; Proverbs 28:19“He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain personsshall have poverty enough.”
It would be very strange for a person to reject money; in fact many seek and even pay for financial advice. Debt, and misuse of finances is one of the causes of poverty. The truth is that no one likes to take accountability for their actions therefore they do not seek to rectify and give themselves a chance. People do not want to hear the truth for free but they will pay to hear something that they cannot achieve in relation to money. It takes discipline and diligence to make progress. Proverbs 22:11 “He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.” Otherwise if you do not like to be spoken words from a pure heart there will be nothing but waste. Luke 15:13“And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.”
In this time period is hard to find examples of good parents. What you will typically find in the news or online is how the love of many parents has turned cold. In the scriptures we find that our righteous forefathers had great care of their children and future generations. By their faith they obtained promises and wealth that they passed down far into the future. Genesis 17:7“And I will establish my covenant between me and thee [Abraham] and thy seed [children] after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.”
