Sermons from Barney Fife on Valentines Day

Valentines Day is a day of love and a day where lovers have the wonderful opportunity of showing their love to that someone special. It isn’t just for lovers though, it is for anyone who is deserving of that love, a child, a parent, a friend, a family member, a coworker a fellow church member.

You know Ol Pastor Barney never had much of a problem in telling others that he loved them, just like us though, sometimes it was a little embarrassing when others noticed that love. I think we are all like that a little bit, maybe we are a little embarrassed to say, ‘I love you,’ or to hold hands in public, or to even give that hug.

We can learn a lot from Barn on this, he is willing to go that extra mile and use those important 3 words, ‘I love you,’ but better than that, he is willing to show it in unique and special ways. Are we? Are we willing to tell and show our friends at church, at work, in our family, or even our spouse or lover? Why or why not?

What do you think? Can you share special tender moments of how others have showed you love, or how you have maybe showed someone else love? Why celebrate this love on just one day of the year? Heck, ol Barn showed those he loved every day he was alive. Maybe we can do the same.
