"...Not Sentimental Gush"

So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well. Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. Live a lover's life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God.
Phillippians 1:9-11 The Message

May we love well, not just on days Hallmark, flower shops and candy makers everywhere decide to promote it.

Happy Valentine's Day!
