God's Conversation Hearts

Those familiar conversation hearts that show up every February can be more than just trite romantic or friendly sayings. Use them to remind you -- or to teach a child -- of the greatest love of all: God's love for us, which empowers our love for others. For example:

  • TRUE LOVE: What love is truer than giving up one's only Son so people might have everlasting life? (John 3:16).
  • MINE: Jesus knows us intimately, as a shepherd knows his sheep. No one can snatch us from him (John 10:27-29).
  • FOREVER: God loves us with an "everlasting love" (Jeremiah 31:3).
  • LOVE ME: The greatest commandment is to love God with our whole being (Luke 10:27).
  • TRUST ME: "Let not your hearts be troubled." We can count on Jesus, now and for eternal life (John 14:1-3).
  • SWEET TALK: God's words are sweeter than honey (Psalm 119:103).
  • BE GOOD: We show our love for Christ by keeping his commands (John 14:15).
  • CALL ME: God longs to be in fellowship with us. We can talk to him anytime in prayer (Jeremiah 33:3).
  • FRIENDS: The greatest love involves laying down your life for your friends (John 15:13) -- precisely what Jesus did.
  • #1: We love because [God] first loved us (1 John 4:19).
