We just celebrated Valentines Day. A lot of people received Valentine cards that said, “Be mine!” The person receiving the card had the opportunity to respond to that invitation. It’s sometimes risky to give a Valentine card and expect a response. Sometimes, the feeling isn’t mutual, or the Valentine is ignored because there are other offers out there. However, the card can lead to or enhance a loving relationship.
God has said, “Be Mine!” in a variety of ways – especially by sending Jesus. We, too, have an opportunity to respond. Unfortunately, some are not interested. Others are too busy or preoccupied with other loves or interests. However, when we respond to God’s invitation, a tremendous – forever relationship can develop – bringing blessing to us and those around us and glory to our heavenly Father who said the original “Be Mine!”
