Salute

It's Valentine's day today.

Happy Valentine's day to all my wonderful friends and family spread across the globe.

it's a day set side for love. This got me thinking about the greatest love a person can have for another?. According to John 15:13, the greatest love a person can have for his friend is to give his life for them. We know of one who did that for us and for this we are eternally grateful.

Question? Can/have you given your life for anyone? I can picture the look of surprise on your face. I don't mean like Jesus did. Have you ever gone without so that someone else can have?

The following are in my opinion, examples of giving up of one's live for a friend and i salute you if you have ever given up anything for anyone.

If you've had to hold back on your dream to ensure that a love one gets to fulfil their's.

If you've had to look after your frail parent despite the financial difficulty involved.

If you've given your home or a space in your home to accommodate someone in need.

If you've had to relocate to another country in search of greener pastures in hope of a better life for your love ones you've left behind.

If you've had to give up your education so that your siblings can have an education.

If you've given up your job, to be a full time carer to a sick friend, parent, sibling or neighbour.

If you've had to give up the comfort of your own home, job and time to care for the sick and wounded in deserter zone.

If you constantly have to give your time to serve your local community, your church, your, family/friends
.

The list is endless, if you can't fine yourself in this list look at your life and at any selfless act of kindness you've shown another and thank the Good Lord for enabling you to be of help.

Celebrate yourself today because you've demonstrated the greatest love a person can give in being selfless.
