Genesis 1 vs. 5: ‘And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day’
So, February 14, itself is not an evil day. All days are created by God for its glory. If you are celebrating Valentine’s Day, ensure you celebrate it to the glory of God.
Dedicate the day to God, and ask the Holy Spirit how you should celebrate it.
Make new friends in your working places and schools.
Appreciate your old friends by sending them gifts.
Appreciate your parents and those that have helped you in one way or the other in life, be sending notes or gifts.
If you need to go for a drink or food, ensure you are in good company and your safety is not compromised.
Most importantly, refrain from any associations or acts that may cause you to sin. Either by what you drink, what you see, or where you go. Valentine’s Day is not meant for illicit sex.
Discuss this over with your friend that you do not intend to have sexual relationship with him on this day and watch where you go, and whom you are with alone.
Watch out for date raping. Don’t go out with anyone you do not trust, and if you must go out with a single watch where you go.
Avoid environments that promote ungodliness. This includes night clubs, discos, and sex shows.
The best place to spend Valentine’s Day is the presence of God. God is the greatest Valentine who gave us his only begotten son for our salvation. Arrange to be in the presence of God- either Church or fellowship and thank God for his love on you.
If you do not have anyone as a Valentine, remember God is the greatest Valentine you can ever have. He is the greatest lover. Pour you love on him, with songs of thanksgiving.
