Today I was helping with our church's children's choir. One of the second graders came running to me with a giant smile. "Moriah! Guess what? I have a boyfriend!" I smiled and she ran off to get her snack. That comment from a seven year old made me think. The world is telling girls that they need a boy to make them feel special. To make them feel loved. Who is going to step up and tell them that there is a Heavenly Father who loves them so much more than any boyfriend could? This week, as we approach Valentine's Day, I am giving you a challenge. Give someone a valentine, only instead of the normal message of "love you" or "best friends forever" write John 3:16.
You can even take it a step further and write about how much Jesus loves them no matter what. If you decide to take part in this, you can comment below and I will praying that their hearts will be open for the Gospel!
