When a Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday!

Yes! Yesterday was Valentine's day! 
There has been lots of talk, hype and events slated for this year's (2016) celebration. Why? Is it because if falls on a weekend or on Sunday?
.
Churches are making preparations for their singles and married lest they get 'trapped' by the love in the air. Entertainers are making plans to engage those who are in love (lust) so they can be patronized.
.
Everybody, especially those in a love relationship (boyfriend and girlfriend) are also looking forward to this day for its celebration. A day when there's going to be lots of hangout and hangovers, much sales of condoms and contraceptives and lots of immoralities at its peak.
.
Does love ends on a day like this? Does love cease in the air after February 14? Is it only a day to promote love?
.
Don't get me wrong, it's good to celebrate this kind of day for those who care, not to promote immoralities or ungodliness but to be celebrated by married couples, engaged singles or amongst friends.
.
May I tell you this, love exist forever and can be celebrated beyond Valentine's day. I'm sure you know that?
.
Now imagine you ended up spending it to gratify the deeds of the flesh, will you be able to undo what time cannot change? It's better you don't do the things that would mar your destiny than to regret it afterwards.
.
And in case you don't know, love can be expressed without any consequences and also with consequences.
.
Expressing love with the wrong person will bring daring consequences. Expressing love (lovemaking) at the wrong time will leave you hurt and destroyed. Don't be deceived and fooled.
.
There's nothing you enjoy after Valentine's day. You can either have good memories of it or live with the consequence of your unguarded activities of that day. Pleasure kills and it's destructive.
.
How will you spend your Valentine's day? It's okay if you enjoyed fun in a godly way because it wouldn't leave bad memories. But when you groove in an ungodly way, be sure to await the consequences of it.
.
You know the consequences of catching fun in an ungodly way, it wouldn't leave you with things like STDs, unwanted pregnancy, loss of virginity, evil soul ties, loss of virtues and the likes.
.
What's going to be your achievements after drinking to stupor or wasting away the better you on one day celebration that it would take you sweat and rigor to gather yourself together?
.
Discover God's love and express it. It leaves you with no hurt. It's the only love you can express on a day like this that will not mar your life and destiny. Don't express lust in place of love. When lust is conceived it brings forth sin, and sin when it is finished, it leads to death and destruction.
.
Guard your loins. Don't loose your guard. There's a way you can enjoy the Valentine in a non-destructive way than to celebrate it in a way that would leave you with a lifetime of regrets even when another Valentine's day comes.
.
Promote God's love and not lust. Spend the day wisely wisely and not in a way you'd forever regret it!
