Many waters can’t quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man would give all the wealth of his house for love, he would be utterly scorned.
Song of Solomon 8:7
How many times have you heard someone say, “I wish I would have told them how much I loved them.” Or, “I wish I would have gone to visit them more often, or done ‘this or that’ while they were still here.”
If you love someone, don’t wait. Tell them.
If you love someone, don’t wait. Show them.
If you love someone, don’t wait. Act like it.
Love is the most precious commodity we have here on earth—even more precious than time. Love gives us courage, strength, hope, confidence, security, and a reason to be. Whether your love is the kind of love we express toward friends, extended family, children, or spouses, it doesn’t really matter. Just make sure you don’t let love go unsaid.
Thank You for loving me.
Make me conscious of the need to make sure people know I love them.
Don’t ever let me wait too long to let them know.
In Your Son’s Name, I pray, Amen.
