Valentine’s Day is my birthday, so naturally I have a soft spot in my heart for it. I was out to lunch today when I noticed a man sitting in a booth by the door wearing pink paper hearts on his sleeve and shirt. They were taped on with some sort of writing on them. As I examined them closer, I noticed one that read, “Love is patient.”
Immediately recognizing this as a quotation from (somewhere in) the bible, I literally stopped in my tracks. I smiled and said, “That is incredible! So, is this how you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day?”
“Yeah, I wanted to wear my heart on my sleeve to show people how wonderful love is!”
I introduced myself to Nathan and we talked for a few minutes. Nathan informed me that he was a teacher at a local Christian Academy. He was looking for non-intrusive, innovative and friendly ways to spread the gospel. Apparently his middle school students had the idea for the “heart on his sleeve trick” and he was wearing it to simply spread the love on the day most synonymous with love!
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
What quotation, famous saying or one-liner would you like to communicate to the world?
