Bible verses about
Valentine’s Day

The origins of Valentine’s Day, celebrated worldwide by lovers every February 14, are lost to legend.

One legend holds that a priest named Valentine performed weddings for young soldiers in defiance of a law mandating that soldiers be single. Another legend suggests that Valentine was martyred for helping Christians escape brutal persecution.

Regardless of how Valentine’s Day began, it is now a universal celebration of love. As a child of God, revel in the knowledge that He loves YOU more than humanly possible — today, and every day.
