Flotsam & Jetsam (2/14): Valentine’s Day Edition

All About Love – Must-read. Petra shares three love themes by C.H. Spurgeon.

A Little Bit of Humor – Kevin DeYoung shares some funny photos… Valentine’s Day-style.

Cheap Love – Jonathan Dodson, over at The Resurgence, writes, “So many of the songs about God’s love currently being written and sung are cheap. They are mushy with no substance. Like milk-bloated cereal, they drip with emotion but fall flat on substance. Such cheap love songs act like God is our cosmic girlfriend.”

How Do You Love Them? – Another beautiful (and timely) post from my Mom.

Valentine – Last year, John Piper presented his wife with pictures and a poem in honor of Valentine’s Day.

What Is Love? – Justin Taylor shares some wise words from Paul Tripp about the true nature of love. (This is specifically for married couples, but everyone can benefit from it.)

The Queen of Christian Graces – J.C. Ryle writes, “My heart’s desire and prayer to God is that the growth of love may be promoted in this sin-burdened world. In nothing does the fallen condition of man show itself so strongly as in the scarcity of Christian love. There is little faith on earth, little hope, little knowledge of Divine things. But nothing, after all, is as scarce as real love.”

“Do not waste time bothering whether you “love” your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone you will presently come to love him.” ~ C.S. Lewis
