               February is a month often associated with love. A few decades ago, a hit county singer crooned, “I was looking for love in all the wrong places. Looking for love in too many faces...” Unfortunately, those lyrics are too true for too many people in our world. In their search for something more, persons try to find unconditional love and approval in interpersonal relationships, material things, careers, education, hobbies, addictions, etc. Although these things may satisfy for a pe-riod, ultimately all will fail and the search resumes. All the while, they fail to see the One whose very essence is love.March 6 is Ash Wednesday. This day begins the season of Lent which is the time for Christians to reflect and remember history’s most important demonstration of love the death of Jesus Christ on Calvary’s cross. We do not need to search everywhere looking for an elusive love to bring us brief happiness. God is waiting with out-stretched arms for us to accept his gift of eternal love.“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8.Lookin’ for Love...February is a month often associated with love.
