the greatest of these

Turned the calendar page today to the new month - February.  Short in days, yet always feels like the L.O.N.G.E.S.T. month of the year because of the season of weather we are in right now and the feeling of being stuck in the house way too much.

The verse is, of course, appropriate for what is known as the month of LOVE:  "And now these three remain:  faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love." ~ First Corinthians 13:13

In my mind, it seems that the greatest of these is God's love.  For without knowing His love, it is impossible to know faith, hope, and how to truly love others.  His love is abundant beyond our imagination and shown through His Son, Jesus Christ, who paid the ultimate price through His sacrifice on the cross for all those sins that separate us from our Heavenly Father.  

A sacrificial love gift for me.  For you.  For the world.

Once accepted, this love gift brings faith, hope, and love into our lives which doesn't look anything like the love the world has to offer us.  It's a kazillion times better and lasts through eternity.  

May this kind of love grow in YOUR garden!
