Valentine’s Day in present times has become a huge craze especially among the youth. Those in love start planning for the Valentine's Day celebrations with sweetheart days before the festival while those without a lover start looking for a date so that they are able to celebrate the day in the much-romanticized manner. Hype for the festival is further built up by the media and the rigorous advertising campaign run by the cards and gifts marketers.

The festival has come to be known as the day to celebrate love that can be in any form. People therefore take opportunity of the occasion to wish ‘Happy Valentine's Day' to their friends, parents, siblings, teachers or anyone they consider special. Children too celebrate Valentine's Day by organizing concerts and classroom get-togethers.

While most people go out of their way to celebrate the day of love and romance, some feel there is no reason to celebrate love on one particular day as love is to be cherished on all days of the year.  

The best place to find love is not in another person but in a book, the Bible.  The Bible tells of God’s great love for us.  This is expressed in John 3:16.
  For God so loVed the world,
                                          That He gAve
                                                         His onLy
                  That whoever
                                                    Believes In Him
                                                     Should Not perish,
       But have Everlasting life.

God loves us like no one else ever could.  He showed that love when He sent His Son, Jesus, to be our Saviour. He is also the Best Companion we will ever have.
Open your Bible and learn more about Him.

The more you read the Bible, the more you will love its Author.
