“He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said, ‘Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.'” ~ Mark 8:12 (full readings)

Rich’s Reflections: Red heart-shaped chocolate boxes, conversation hearts, laced doilies, and cupids line the store aisles. Commercialism has defined signs of affection for us to purchase, and we are pressured every year to buy them for our love ones. In today’s Gospel, the Pharisees pressured Jesus to produce a sign, but He refuses. Jesus’ response shows that a sign originating in human demand will not be provided. God’s love is not forced, but given freely. Today on Valentine’s Day, show your loved ones that you love them by giving them yourself freely as Jesus gave Himself to us. Give them your time, your affection, your listening ear, your compassionate heart, your self-sacrificing love. Lord, teach me to love as You love. Amen.

Faith Challenge: Tomorrow for Valentine’s Day, don’t focus on giving your loved ones material things, instead focus on giving them you.

Faith Quote:  “The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.” ~ C.S. Lewis

Through Christ our Lord,
James 1:22
* Pray/Fast: Prayer connects us with God’s will and His miracles, changing us & helping others. Fast from things that take your eyes off Jesus. Those who pray together stay together, and close to God!
* Save Unborn (and family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (22% pregnancies). Prov 24:11 and Jer 1:5. “A great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish.” Mother Teresa.
* Evangelize: Make room for unbelievers and re-evangelization of self, by way of prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of love (service/sacrifice/mercy). Matt 28:19.
