Valentine’s Day

Love One Another

Psalm 139:14: I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

Genesis 1:27: So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

I got a great tip this week from the GrammarBook.com e-newsletter. I was reminded that “I” is a subject pronoun and “me” is an object pronoun. Two pronouns are used in two ways to describe who I am; the English language can be confusing. Let’s not get confused about who we are. You are not who other people say you are; you are not a consumer swayed by every TV commercial. You are not just a reflection of your parents, friends or colleagues, not just an employee, parent or friend.You are uniquely handcrafted by God, Himself.

Psalm 139 says that God knit you together. The truth is, we are all part of a divine creation which God said is “very good” (Genesis 1:31). Listen to what else He said. He said, “love

one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34). Then let’s love each other and be good to each other. Take a new look at the person holding the “will work for food sign,” the rude co-worker, the needy child or hurtful friend. See them for who God made them to be. Look deeper, and see their better half. Can you see that they are hurting and need your help? While the world goes to war over natural resources like oil and gas, The Salvation Army hunts for more of the best natural resource: people. Every day with The Salvation Army people express love by serving others. Together, with thousands of local volunteers the Tulsa Area Salvation Army is able to

feed the hungry , house the homeless , teach dance classes , music lessons and art classes , coach sports teams, train up children and build a better community , help families pay their utility bills.

Remember, you are exactly who God made you to be, and we would be honored for you to join us in “Doing The Most Good.”To get involved: e-mail the Volunteer Coordinator rhonda_mcdaniel@uss.salvationarmy.org or call 918-587-7801 x113
