Part 45/365: If you are new to this page, here’s a little background. In short, I lost a bet and this is my daily review of the popular Christian devotional from Jesus Daily.

Dear Karen,
Happy Valentine’s Day, Karen! I hope your day is filled with love, wine and roses. As for me – I’ve got some sweet secular lovemaking to get to, so let’s get this over with!

VERSE OF THE DAY: The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” – 1 Samuel 16:7

Jesus Christ! If there was ever a time to actually quote Jesus in a book about Jesus, you’d think it might be Valentine’s Day. But, yet again, the author resorts to random verses from the Old Testament? Here, let me try…

Meanwhile, Jesus Says… “I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do. But I’ll tell you whom to fear. Fear God, who has the power to kill you and then throw you into hell. Yes, he’s the one to fear!” Jesus Christ, Your Valentine  – Luke 12:4-5

Oh, never mind… that didn’t help the author’s case. “FEAR ME!” sayeth the Lord.

Today’s Themes:

Today’s devotional is honestly so ridiculous (and cheesy) that it’s hard to even discuss with a straight face. I will say that the whole saccharin-sweet diatribe ends with the line, “Your father’s love is unconditional.”

Uhh… really? It’s almost like the author has never read the Bible.

Forget it – enjoy your chocolates. See you tomorrow.

P.S. Yep, I’m finally getting around to putting up a little tip jar.

I’ve got going on. (Spoiler Alert: I could use your help.)
