The Irony of Love

Some days ago, the whole world clebrated what is meant to be love, popularly called Valentine's Day. It is however ironic that the day that is meant to be for love is the day that people assist in truncating the destiny of others just to satisfy their lustful feelings. This is not in any way what love is. The day has been so bastardized that I will be glad if there is nothing referred to as St. Valentine's day because it has over time become a day that naive young ladies are initiated into promiscuity.

The purpose of this blog is not to rubbish what love is, but to implore as many of us that God has helped to understand that true love does not mean sex, but true love is about caring for the next person, giving that person reason to live again. It may be in the place of time giving, material giving or just your smile.

Love is what makes the world go round and every human being who knows God will know that true love entails sacrifice. Just for the future of that young girl, kill your lustful desires and concentrate on how best you can help her grow. For the sake of that visionary young man, do away with your crave for material things and focus on how that young man has added more value to your live through his wise words and the time you were down and he stood by you.

He who knows God is meant to teach the world how to love, and not conforming to the world's definition of love. So many big pictures have been burnt to ashes just because of the decietful way that people show love. It is our responsibility to be the light that people will use to see. The greatest love is the love of sacrifice, let us teach giving more than recieving cos love is about giving when you don't expect anything in return.

As you show love to people, don't forget to love your country as well. God bless Nigeria.
