DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 4; Psalm 34; Acts 1

In the last day, that great day of the feast. John 7:37

Today, Chinese communities in many countries celebrate the last day, the fifteenth day, of their New Year. In my country, Chinese ladies go to the beaches or river banks and throw mandarin oranges into the water with the wish that they will find good husbands this year. Today the secular world also celebrates Valentine’s Day with couples highlighting love to one another. On the last day of the eight-day Jewish Feast of Tabernacles, the Lord proclaimed, “If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink” (John 7:37). He was proclaiming His offer of love and eternal life to all who would believe in Him. On this day of love, will you respond to His love? —K. C. Ung

God is love! His Word proclaims it, day by day the truth we prove;
Heav’n and earth with joy are telling, ever telling, “God is love!”
—Fanny J. Crosby
