Valentine's Day—what's the point?

This week in ENCOUNTER we looked at one possible story of how Valentine's Day got started.

But now matter how it started, it's become a time of the year that can heap a lot of feelings on people. If you're dating, you have expectations. Or you feel burdened on what to do to make the day special. If you're not dating, you just get sick of hearing about it from everyone who is. You just want the day over with.

Although it may be cliché to say, please remember whether you have someone to date or not, God loves you. Sure, that may still seem lonely since He's not around in person to be with you. But it's still true. And no matter how people treat you, God has your heart on His mind all the time.

So whatever else you do, give God a thought this Valentine's Day.
