Mormon Messages have been a wonderful way to help teach the Gospel. This Valentine’s Day I wanted to share three Mormon Messages on True Love.
With Valentine’s Day falling on Sunday, I thought it would be appropriate to share Mormon Messages on True Love. Typically this day seems to focus on Eros, or romantic love. Earlier this month I shared a post that was centered on Philia, or friendship. Today I want to talk about three Mormon Messages on True Love, or Agape. It is often referred to as charity.
1. How Do I Love Thee
Jeffrey R. Holland shares Christlike love and what it means in courtship and marriage. He offers wonderful advice how to adjust to new relationships like, caring for your loved one, think the best of them, assume the good and doubt the bad.
2. Enduring Love
A vignette that portrays the pure love of a couple as the husband shows service in to his wife their marriage—even though they have to endure debilitating physical adversity.
Marriage provides an ideal setting for overcoming any tendency to be selfish or self-centered… Pure love is an incomparable, potent power for good, and the foundation of a successful marriage. – Elder Richard G. Scott
3. Expressions of Love
Lastly I wanted to share am intimate look into the relationship of Elder Richard G. Scott and his beloved wife Jeanine. One day we will find ourselves parted from our spouse. Now is the time to create memories like these to that when we see each other again “beyond the veil, we will recognize that we have become even more deeply in love.” Now that Elder Scott has been reunited with his departed wife, I have not doubt this is true. If you don’t believe me, read 5 Times Elder Richard G. Scott Made Us Love Him, Because He Loved His Wife Jeanene.
If you don’t have a special someone, that’s fine. My wife shared some ideas for you to be able to have an awesome Galentine’s Day next year.
