Don’t Take the Bait on Valentine’s Day! (Video – SKIT)


Satan would love to use Valentine’s Day to create bitterness, resentment, jealousy, division, hatred, and contempt in our lives. Don’t take the bait!

It’s fine to ask for us to ask for what we would like respectfully. But if things don’t work out – we don’t have to lash out destructively.

We also don’t have to buy the expectations the world tries to sell us.

Let’s love our husbands more than we love the world’s expectations for us. Let’s remember to appreciate all the ways our husbands do show love for us. And let’s love God most of all!

We can be content in Christ every day – including Valentine’s Day!

  1. That was me a few years ago… resentful. My husband’s philosophy is that he doesn’t need Valentine’s Day to give me gifts or go to dinner. And he hates crowded places so to go out on Valentine’s Day? So not his thing. My husband isn’t your romantic type. And he’s practical and one of those against the grain people. He’d rather do random surprises throughout the year. And now I’m ok with that.

    1. Marie,

      It’s so freeing to realize that we don’t have to be slaves to a card company or to advertisers or what the world says we are supposed to do on a certain day. I’m glad you are able to receive his way of sharing love. That is awesome! Thank you so much for sharing!

    2. Marie that’s awesome! I agree. I love this site. My husband and I learned of the five love languages have to get book/author for you but it really opened our eyes as to who we were as a person, and it came with a quiz that scored your language

        1. Marie! Thank you soooooo much! I am so glad I found your site, I’m trying to see how I did, I think I was on Pinterest maybe… but however Im glad I did! I have been trying to connect my friends to start receiving emails from you! It’s such a blessing to have positive things, people such as yourself and your blog to help and remind us of who God really want us to be and how he wants us to live! My hubby and I have been married 12 years – August will make 13 with one child in the home, and it is a journey! We make it work together! Thank you soooooooooooo much, and for responding back so soon, the more happier I am to know that now also! I signed up for Gary’s emails also and did the quiz again! I am truly one who loves to be affirmed with words!!

  2. Unfortunately this was me the first 15 years of my marriage. So thankful for God’s mercy and patience and husband who has been endearing! Today Valentines Day goes by totally unacknowledged. We must get set free from the need to find our significance and security from our husbands, children, parents, friends, etc. Jesus Christ is the Only One who is able to do that for all of us. Those He places in my life are simply to encourage me and bring out the richness of that which He has implanted within me. And, that’s my job for my husband, children, etc.
    A game changer and one that was a major influence in helping me to understand this: How To Become One With Your Mate by Dr. Crabb, Jr.
    Thanks, April, for your obedience in being used in encouraging and bringing out the richness in me and so many others!

    1. mission61,

      Thank you so much for sharing a bit of your story. That is awesome!

      And thanks for sharing this book. It sounds interesting.

      I’m so thankful God allows us to share with each other and encourage each other. What a blessing!
