We have just celebrated Valentine’s Day in which we try to express the love we have for those close to us. It can be frustrating and limiting to try to do so. We struggle to find the perfect gift be it jewelry,
flowers or some desired object. It is a good time to look at the greatest expression of love mankind has ever seen. It was the perfect gift for each of us who will receive it and be thankful.
I am speaking of the love expressed by Jesus as He held out His bleeding hands to all with the invitation to come unto me, receive my love for you. Let me take your sin upon me. It did not have pretty wrappings, but it was very costly. Let us offer that gift to anyone we come across who does not know it is there.
