Love is the craze of February, especially on Feb. 14 when we see red hearts everywhere, especially in malls.

Love is a much used and misused word. People use it often but it can have different meanings for different people.

For some "love" is equivalent to "like," as for example, "I love ice cream" to mean "I like ice cream." So "I love you" can just mean "I like you."

For others, love has a stronger meaning. It involves a lot of emotion and sentimentality. This is the love that people refer to on Valentine’s Day. It is romantic love.

Christianity is very much connected to love because of our understanding that God is love, which is clearly revealed in the Scriptures.
