Violent manifestations in Venezuela results in the death of many students

Previously this week, a Venezuelan student tweeted the chronicles of the violent day of the manifestations. He described how he carried a fellow student who died in his hands, and hours later he himself was shot to death. It saddens me to see these types of revolts where innocent people perish at the hands of dirty government officials. However, the best thing we can do is pray and hope for God to open these people's hearts.

Valentine's Day

Today, February 14, people are celebrating Valentine's day all over the world. Many people go and buy chocolates or any candy to give to someone ( I include myself here) thinking of some friendship or romantic idea of love. Yet many of us do not realize the true type of love, the love that is in the Bible. Today being Valentine's day made me think of 1 Corinthians 13:7 "(Love)beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things." It is true, love bears all things and always forgives. Also, love never stops trusting, Jesus showed us how true love is: he forgave us even in our sinful filthy hearts. The best example that I can think of that love on this earth is that of a mother to her children; a mother will never stop loving her son wether he is a rapist and murderer or if he is a succesful man. We should think of that love and apply it to our friends, family, and loved ones every day, not only today.
